The inaugural Bellingham SeaFeast (September 30 to October 1, 2016) was such a smashing success with high attendance and abundant praise that the City of Bellingham has extended the $50,000 seed grant to repeat SeaFeast September 22 to 23, 2017. The event is clearly a serious endeavor, and organizers even released its own commissioned documentary Servants of the Salish Sea produced by Pollock Pictures about our beloved marine environment and the commercial fishing industry that makes delicious and life giving Pacific Northwest seafood possible.
Spotlighting what the commercial fishing industry does with the seafood the general public enjoys, the event aims to bridge the gap between industry and the public. The FisherPoets performances, dock tours, live entertainment, hands on activities, and of course, seafood, will make appearances again.
