Seafair Women in Leadership Program

Under development - set to launch in 2021
The Seafair Foundation’s Women in Leadership Program, will aim to provide support, encouragement and leadership opportunities for young women in college. The Program will provide networking and real-world experience to help young women, including minorities and those who would not otherwise have access to such opportunities, achieve at a high level and prepare to be women leaders in the workforce. More information will become available in 2020.

Seafair Community Events

Showcasing the diversity, personality and culture of the Puget Sound Region.
Seafair believes in celebrating the traditions of our region, resources and residents. We are proud to support over 30 local parades/festivals representing ethnic, geographic and/or subject matter interests across the region. Events are chosen through an application process. Seafair offers program participants numerous resources including support, training and information through symposiums, webinars and resource documents. In addition, Seafair heavily promotes these events giving them an increased level of exposure.

76 Seafair Holiday Cruise

A maritime holiday gift for the intellectually disabled community.
This event takes place on the waters of Lakes Union and Washington as independent boaters and charter operators volunteer their boats, crews and time to host over 1500 intellectually disabled guests on a very special holiday parade of boats. The boats are decked out in lights and holiday cheer at various docks and yacht clubs. Once aboard, guests are treated to food and beverages and enjoy entertainment, gifts and a visit with Old St. Nick!
