THING festival postponed to 2021

PORT TOWNSEND — THING festival has postponed its second year to take place in summer of 2021 because of the state’s stay-at-home order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The multi-day multidisciplinary festival is slated to return to Fort Worden State Park the weekend of Aug. 27, 2021, organizers announced Monday.

THING was the idea of Adam Zacks — the founder of the Sasquatch! festival and chief programming officer for the Seattle Theater Group — and is put on by the Seattle Theater Group.

On its inaugural outing last summer, the two-day event sold out and had more than 5,000 people attend each day, organizers said.

The first festival held a variety of events such as live music, guided hikes, on-stage podcasts and many other forms of entertainment.

Programming and event scheduling will be announced closer to the new date.
