You are invited
to the Edmonds Waterfront Festival
Once again the Port of Edmonds and Edmonds Rotary have invited us to bring our beautiful boats to the Port as part of the Edmonds Waterfront Festival. We would like to completely fill the available mooring spaces with our boats because their is some talk about inviting different boats next year and the Port would like to have us come back. To register, please go to this link, Edmonds Registration.
As usual the Port would like us to open our boats to the public which is why they provide moorage Friday and Saturday nights. They also provide free entrance to the Festival grounds. So we should be open from 11am to 4pm with time out for lunch. The Festival itself officially opens on Friday, June 1st at 3pm and continues until 10pm. If you want to open your boat that evening it is up to you. Saturday the Festival opens at 11am and closes at 10pm and on Sunday it opens at 11am and closes at 7pm. We can arrive any time after noon on Friday and should not leave until after 4pm on Sunday in order to allow the public access on both days.
This year there is a change in moorage availability since a whale watching boat, SARATOGA, will have permanent moorage between the north side of J dock and the south side of K dock. This gives our boats an even smaller area in which to moor and makes it more important that you sign up early and don't back out at the last minute. Also, there will be no room for those who decide to come at the last minute if the moorage spaces are already filled. There will be a waiting list if needed.
The port says that the SAROTOGA will only make one trip a day during the time we are there, so one exit and one re-entry. She is a 73’ catamaran and her speed in the marina will be minimal as she leaves and returns. Passengers will be entering at the north entrance to the docks and boarding on J dock.
We will provide each vessel a boat information sign, made from the information you provide in the registration form and a boat open and closed sign.
This is a smaller event than Bell Harbor and is a great one for new members to attend with their boats. Please contact Janice with any questions you may have.

Also new this year is the “Best Staging Contest” as follows: Longtime CYA member Monty Holmes and his company, Athletic Awards, has donated a beautiful new trophy to be awarded at Bell Street for “Best Staging.” Your boat will be judged “for staging.” For example, if you have a 1920’s boat, do you have original components in the boat that you can highlight? A 1950’s boat might have an original tender with an old 1950’s motor. A 60’s boat might be full of Space Needle memorabilia, etc. We all do this to show our boats, let’s make it extra special this year!
Visitors to the show will be receiving the customary printed program listing participating vessels. First-time attendees, please provide a brief description of your boat and its history for the printed program, 100 words maximum. Allparticipants’ information will be posted on line prior to printing for your approval and/or comments. Program questions? Contact: Jim Paynton, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 206-708-9508.
We expect all participating vessels will allow rafting, if necessary, and will remain in their slips until the show closes at 4 pm on Sunday. Moorage is available for Thursday and/or Sunday night by arrangement with the Harbormaster’s office. If you choose to stay extra nights, please coordinate your slip assignment with CYA Dock Master Bob Irving.
