Redwood City PortFest


We appreciate your interest in PortFest 2020. Redwood City has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and to protect the well-being of our guests, partners, and staff, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.
We will continue to explore avenues to further engage with our community. Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you.

PortFest is a free community celebration and waterfront festival held at the Port of Redwood City. We welcome the community to learn about the maritime heritage of the Port, the industrial working waterfront, and participate in recreational activities hosted on the San Francisco Bay.
