Community Day provides a showcase for our port stakeholders to display the very important work they do through either a trade show or static display environment. The event is designed to elevate community awareness and appreciation of the impact the wider port asset has on the city and region.
Secondarily, Community Day provides a fun, family event along with entertainment and activity throughout our east side cruise terminals both inside and outside. Each year we expand on the offerings. Last year more than 8,000 people of all ages attend the event.
Twenty-fifteen is the 5th anniversary year for Community Day and we are planning even more new features for attendees.
Since Community Day is operated as a way to give back to the community, fundraising from the event, or from other specially designed Port Days activities, has provided tens of thousands of dollars to support local charities who are providing basic needs assistance to children living priority neighborhoods surrounding the Port.
