The cold, damp winter and spring will be but a memory for these two summer events in the Portland Harbor. There’s fun for everyone while learning more about the waterfront businesses that help keep tens of thousands employed and millions of tons of goods moving.
July 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Terminal 2, 3556 N.W. Front Avenue
Seaport Celebration is back for its fifth year, opening the gates of Terminal 2 for a family-friendly, fun-filled day of adventure on the river.

Inside, you’ll find interactive booths and displays, jet boat tours, fun and games for kids, food carts and live music. Best of all, admission is free!
