Maritime Day is an all-day celebration of boat building, the arts and community spirit, with music, food and activities for all ages. Musical acts include Jeffrey Halford & the Healers, Fiver Brown, Ukulele Friends Ohana, and the Chris Haugen Band. Maritime Day also features a flea market, local artists, boat rides, dinghy races, boat tours, a boatbuilding demonstration, and fish & chips and homemade pies at the food booth.

Everyone is welcome! For more information or to reserve a space at the flea market, please call (415) 332-8554.

Each year a small wooden boat is raffled off, with proceeds to benefit Galilee Harbor. This year’s beauty was built by local boatwrights Holden Crane and Anton Hottner of Northbay Boatworks
