Harbor Opening & Mermaid Festival
May 18-20

Seward Harbor Opening Weekend (SHOW) has been a local tradition for years, with businesses rolling out the red carpet in mid-to late May. Local residents get in on the action as well, swabbing decks and checking lines as we celebrate the arrival of the outdoor season to our shores.

Harbor activity abounds on Saturday and Sunday, when you can share in the blessing of the fleet, or watch the boat parade. Walk the docks and keep your eyes peeled for otter and sea lions who are hoping for their own fresh catch. Other activities in and around the marina include business open houses and specials.

It is the beginning of the season, so don’t forget to bring your boat with you and get that Coast Guard safety inspection done.

The Seward Mermaid Festival returns for a second year on Saturday, May 19th
