Olympia Harbor Days Lite / Digital Celebration


  • Digital Event

Digital activities throughout September

Working within Washington State coronavirus health guidelines, the South Sound Maritime Heritage Association (SSMHA) has developed a scaled-down version of its popular Olympia Harbor Days festival normally held every Labor Day Weekend, according to board president Don Chalmers.  

“While we want to continue our 47-year- long Harbor Days legacy, we are also aware that we need to offer a safe event for the public in this coronavirus pandemic era,” Chalmers said.  “So, we’re presenting a virtual event with safe at home community participation activities, Olympia Harbor Days Lite, which keeps our transitional tugboat heritage theme, while using online digital media content and other ways to provide family-friendly activities.”  

Among the features of this year’s event are:

  • Olympia Maritime Heritage Self-Guided Tour along the Percival Landing Boardwalk
  • Links to a Decade of Olympia Harbor Days Videos of Tugboats, Races and Fun
  • Lego Tugboat Building at Home with an Instructional Video
  • Harbor Days at Home – Encouraging Maritime Displays in Neighborhoods
  • Estuary Beach Quest, Crab Bingo and other Stay Safe at Home Activities for Kids by the Puget Sound Estuarium
  • Logo Hats, Facemasks, Collector Buttons and Tugs at the Capital City Vol II Available for purchase
