The first Sequim Sunshine Festival was held in March 2020 to help shake the winter blues and celebrate the approaching spring and summer seasons, organizers said. Highlights of the festival included the Sun Fun Color Run, Interactive Light Experience, and illuminated drone show. A modified version of the festival was held in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. A full festival was held in 2022 and is being planned again for 2023. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available.
