For the first time in 18 years, a storm forced Argosy to cancel and reschedule the Christmas Ship to Redondo Beach. The new date is set for Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 9:05 p.m. at Redondo Beach when the sparkle of holiday lights dancing across the waters of Puget Sound and the warm glow of a raging bonfire contribute to South King County’s most beautiful event of the Christmas season.It’s time for the annual Argosy Christmas Ship Festival at Redondo. The flotilla appears magically out of the dark, complete with music and choir for a twenty-minute performance. All the while guests bask in the firelight of a massive bonfire tended by the local community as the brightly lit fleet bobs on the bay. Read more about the Argosy Christmas Ship™ Festival.
Holiday traditions in the Northwest start on the water. The Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship festival is a holiday celebration that has been a Pacific Northwest tradition since 1949. Every year, the Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, over 45 in total. Choirs onboard sing 20-minute performances to these communities and on shore, thousands of people gather around roaring bonfires anticipating the arrival of the Christmas Ship.
Come on by and enjoy a cup or two of clam chowder and some Christmas Spirit. Help us celebrate FIVE years in business, thanks to people like you.
