Port to Starboard Progressive Dinner | May 9th

The Juneau Maritime Festival has promoted Juneau’s Maritime Commerce, culture and history for four years starting in 2010. This year participants and community members are invited to a hosted first annual fundraising dinner, “Port to Starboard Progressive Dinner” in Juneau to help fund the annual Maritime Festival.  The dinner will be held on May 9th and will start with music and appetizers at Salt (formerly Zephyr), then progress to The Baranof for dinner with more entertainment. The dinner will end at Rockwell’s with desert and a silent auction.  An optional afterhours dance in the ballroom upstairs of Rockwell’s is available for a separate purchase price for those who are looking for something more casual but interesting in supporting this festival.  All seafood for this dinner has been generously donated by Taku Fisheries, Alaska Seafood’s, and Alaska Glacier Seafood’s.
