Leave inspired & committed to restoring healthy oceans &
ecosystems, seafaring jobs, wild fish and fisheries.

Sustainable Oceans, Sustainable Futures

Oceans are 70% of our planet, life sustaining and increasingly at risk. A new ‘blue consciousness” is needed about the importance of restoring and protecting aquatic health, sustainability and productivity for present and future generations.
The Bluefestival takes place at the Maritime Event Center (former Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center), an exciting and educational venue for all ages. Parking is across the street at the Seattle Art Institute parking garage, and very reasonable. Join us at this inaugural Bluefestival and…….
feel the thrill of standing at the helm of a vessel coming into Puget Sound and learn how cargo is loaded and transported to foreign ports.
imagine harvesting wild seafoods on storm tossed seas or exploring local coves and inlets in kayaks and small boats.
hear speakers from a variety of backgrounds and areas of expertise.
talk with exhibitors about projects that you can become part of, from wild fish and habitat restoration to protecting beaches from pesticides and industrial feedlots. Learn about maritime careers, recreational water activities, fishing, cooking wild seafoods and dozens of other interesting topics.
meet chefs, artists, authors, book vendors and film makers and browse tables of products that protect our oceans, decorate our homes and have creative fish and nautical motifs.
