Have a Splash of Fun

The Port of Redwood City waterfront is the location for public events and festivals featuring visits by historic ships and sailing vessels. Each spring the Port is the location for the "Opening Day" of the boating season in the South Bay. In addition, crew boat races, Hawaiian Outrigger canoe races, and sailing regattas are regularly held on the Port's waterfront. 

Make sure your next event makes a splash – literally!


Our waterfront promenade puts you on the banks of fun, whether you’d like to canoe, fish or simply enjoy the bay views. Here you can spot historic ships, wildlife, and if you time it right, a sunset over the water.

You can now permit waterfront parks for special events - the Public Waterfront & Promenade next to the fishing pier can accommodate intimate events for 20-something guests, or public gatherings for over 2,000! Download the Port of Redwood City Park Permit Application for more information.


The space, which is marked at #16 on the map below, can be rented to accommodate all sorts of events. This includes intimate celebrations, such as weddings, corporate retreats, birthday parties, family reunions and showers, or major gatherings for more than 2,000 attendees, such as tradeshows, car shows, festivals and fundraisers.


Either way, the Port of Redwood City waterfront is sure to make a for a memorable experience and we look forward to helping you create it. Plus, our convenient South San Francisco Bay location with ample parking makes the waterfront all the more ideal.
