Prelude canceled; Juan de Fuca Fest to go on

PORT ANGELES — The Prelude to a Festival has been canceled, but not the actual Juan de Fuca Festival set for May 27-29.

The Prelude, which was to feature San Francisco-based band Sam Chase and the Untraditional plus local performer Scott Sullivan on Sunday, was canceled late Thursday because a performer canceled at the last minute, according to Kyle LeMaire, JFFA executive director.

But that has no effect on the Juan de Fuca Festival scheduled May 27-29.

The Prelude was intended to whet the appetite of locals for the full three-day festival set for the end of the month on four stages at and around the Vern Burton Community Center at 308 E. Fourth St.

Prelude tickets have been refunded, LeMaire said in an email issued Friday.

Tickets for the May 27-29 Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts are available online at

For more information, phone the JFFA office at 360-457-5411.
