Truly one of the great West Coast music and arts festivals, it will bring more than 100 performers to Port Angeles this coming Memorial Day weekend — Friday (May 24) through Monday (May 27).
AND THERE'S an extra — a FREE, family-friendly pre-festival special event at 7:30 p.m. Thursday (May 23).
Mane Rok — from Denver, one of the premier hip hop artists/emcees — will perform at the festival's main venue, the Vern Burton Center, 308 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles.
(And there's plenty of nearby free parking, available that night and through the weekend).
