Ways to Support Seattle Fishermen's Memorial


Annual Dedication 
Each year, on the first Sunday in May, we gather as a community to remember those that have gone before us. During our dedication we acknowledge those that have had tiles installed or have been added to the Memorial Wall. This annual event is held at the Fishermen's Terminal the first Sunday of May at 2pm.

Our 2024 service will be held on Sunday, May 5, at 2pm. Please join us to honor those we've lost. 

Fishermen's Fall Festival
This annual event celebrates the return of the North Pacific fishing fleet to the terminal, works to increase the public’s knowledge of the importance of the fishing industry as well as Fishermen’s Terminal to Seattle while raising money for the Seattle Fishermen’s Memorial Foundation. This event is made possible by the Fishermen's Terminal Tenants Association, donations from local businesses, and over 200 volunteers. The event will be held at Fishermen's Terminal on September 28, 2024 and will run from 11am-6pm. 

Seattle Fishermen's Memorial Banquet
This fun - and always entertaining - event is the largest annual event to raise funds for the Memorial's work. Every year in November Chinook's Restaurant closes to the public for one night to host this outstanding event. Members of the community come together for an evening of fine dining, networking, and friendly competition. Winners walk away with fabulous prizes donated by local businesses. 

Financial Support
Seattle Fishermen's Memorial is dependent upon the generosity of our donors. Through your gifts we are able to offer scholarships, safety rebates and provide much needed emotional support to those that have sustained an incredible loss. 

Fishermen's Safety Fair
Each year, Seattle Fishermen's Memorial hosts a Fishermen's Safety Fair to teach fishermen practical skills to save their boats and their lives. Together with our trainers and sponsors, we hope to promote and educate fishermen on the importance of safety. This year's event is on Wednesday, May 22, 2024. This event is held at Fishermen's Terminal at Dock 9. For more information, please contact us at safety@seattlefishermensmemorial.org.
