The historic Eddon Boatyard will be transformed into Santa's BoatShop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 9. Children are invited to build and paint model boats at this festive holiday event.
Come any time between 10 am and 3pm!
It takes roughly one hour to build your boat. Advance registration is recommended.
A $10 fee includes all materials. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Join us as we Float the Boat(Shop) and commemorate Gig Harbor BoatShop’s 10-year anniversary with a festive evening of dinner, drinks, and dancing; storytelling, giving, and toasting 10 years.
A decade ago, the BoatShop was founded after a true community grassroots effort saved the historic Eddon Boatyard from demolition. Since then, we’ve opened our doors to the public and engaged thousands of people with Gig Harbor’s working waterfront.
The work we do is only possible because of you: our neighbors, friends, and community members. It’s only fitting that you join us as we celebrate ten years of providing public benefit and look forward towards the next ten years.
The celebration begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 at the Club @ Gig Harbor Marina in downtown Gig Harbor.

It takes a fish to raise a village. Every year, the greater Gig Harbor community celebrates the return of salmon to our local waters in a day-long event at the Harbor History Museum at Donkey Creek and Austin Estuary Park. The BoatShop will be at the Chum Festival with a Family Boat Building skiff, a fun activity for kids, and lots of information about our programs and projects.
