Join Galilee Harbor for a day of live music, fish & chips and homemade pie on the Sausalito waterfront at the annual Maritime Day festival on Saturday, August 7. This free event is suitable for the whole family. Observe a wooden boat building demonstration by Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding, raise a cheer during the dinghy dash race, see historic vessels, and go on a free boat ride aboard Galilee Harbor’s SV Carodon. Shop the popular marine flea market and artist booths and be sure to purchase a ticket for the Olde Tyme Jar Raffle to win a prize donated by local merchants. Or just relax by the bay, listen to live music, and catch sight of herons and egrets off the Mono Street marsh.

Galilee Harbor Community Association is a cooperative, liveaboard community dedicated to preserving maritime arts and skills and providing affordable housing on the Sausalito waterfront. It’s located at 300 Napa Street at Bridgeway, next to Dunphy Park in Sausalito.
