The Christmas Ship™ Festival sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, around 65 in total. Many of these communities surrounding the shore locations organize holiday events anticipating the arrival of the Christmas Ship™ and Follow Boats offshore. These events, often long-standing community traditions, include bonfires, tree lightings, gatherings or parties. From shore, you’ll be treated to a 20-minute performance, broadcast from the Christmas Ship™ via our state-of-the-art speaker system. This unique way to experience the annual Christmas Ship™ Festival is not to be missed!
