The Christmas Ship Celebration at the Saltwater Park is a Shoreline tradition!

This Pacific Northwest tradition takes place at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park (2021 NW 90th Street). Since parking is limited, please plan to walk if possible.

The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. with music by the St. Luke School Choir.


The Christmas Ship, followed by a fleet of Argosy vessels, private yachts, sailboats and other small crafts decked out with holiday lights, will arrive off the Saltwater Park at 8:20 p.m. Gather around a roaring bonfire while joyous voices from the choir onboard the ship serenade beach guests. Complimentary cookies will be served at the RBCA booth on the beach. This event is jointly sponsored by the City of Shoreline and Richmond Beach Community Association.

For more information, contact Sheri Ashleman at or (206) 542-9147.
