Boatyard Plans Swap Meet Festivities

Swap meet festivities

Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard is celebrating National Marina Day, June 10, 2017 — and you’re invited to the festivities.

Come down to the boatyard for our annual swap meet and find even more fun surrounding the event this year. Live music, food and more booths of boating and water sport treasures than ever are in store for our third annual Swap Meet @ the Boatyard.

Swap Meet, Food, Fun & Festivities on Tap for National Marina Day

Our National Marina Day festivities will run longer this year, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to allow for added fun and quality swap meet browsing. We even have a special event — which will remain a tantalizing secret for now — taking place in the marina at 2 p.m.

New to our swap meet event this year is live music from noon to 3 p.m., and a food truck — in addition to our own JW @ the Boatyard food trolley, of course.

Tacoma native Steve Stefanowicz will be playing at the boatyard from noon to 3 p.m. on National Marina Day, June 10.

We have lined up live music by talented singer/guitar player Steve Stefanowicz, known for his “human jukebox” repertoire of more than a thousand cover songs. The Tacoma native, known also for his absolute pitch, has the rare ability to identify and perfectly replicate notes and memorize the key, harmony, melody and chord changes after hearing a song only once. Steve has a song for everyone with his song list running from Led Zeppelin to jazz, so come down to the boatyard and hear him.

Annual Swap Meet Means Fun @ the Boatyard

So, boaters and boaters-to-be who have already started accumulating water recreation-related stuff. (You can’t help it, look where you live. Besides, that anchor was just the thing for your collection.) Start sorting through your marine treasure trove and plan to stake out a swap meet space on the hard here at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard. We have plenty of booth space under cover in the yard so don’t let that stop you for things you want to keep dry.

Call Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard and reserve your space at our annual swap meet. We have plenty of space under cover. New this year is live music, food and more hours of fun @ the boatyard on June 10.

Pull together those spare fenders, extra anchors and all that surplus fishing gear in the garage and call to reserve your space at our swap meet. Or, just come and browse the meet, listen to some great music and have a bite to eat on the waterfront. You’ll probably find items that are just the thing to add to your collection at home — and you’re sure to have some fun @ the boatyard.
