Three days of music, vendors begins Friday

Tickets to Juan de Fuca Festival available now

PORT ANGELES — The Juan de Fuca Festival’s three days of music, workshops and vendors begins on Friday.

The fair will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. all three days, with the music starting at 5 p.m. Friday and carrying on until 10 p.m. Sunday.

More than 60 acts will perform on five stages. Venues include the Vern Burton Community Center and grounds at 308 W. Fourth St., the nearby Masonic Temple at 622 S. Lincoln St. and Naval Elks Lodge at 131 W. First St.

The festival has two new partnerships, four art workshops, free yoga and some 70 artisan and food vendors in the free street fair.

“It’s quite a bit bigger this year,” said Kyle LeMaire, executive director of the Juan de Fuca Foundation for the Arts.

Live entertainment ranges around the spectrum: classic R&B with Lee Oskar & Friends, brassy funk and rock with MarchFourth, Americana with Rose’s Pawn Shop, 1990s hits with Boy Band Review and Port Townsend’s Abakis.

Admission is free for those 17 and younger, unlike previous years when kids 14 and younger got in free.

Three-day adult passes are $100 while single-day passes range from $30 for Friday only, $55 for Saturday and $50 for Sunday only. Students 21 and younger with valid ID pay half price.

For information, see or phone the office at 360-457-5411.

This year for the first time, the Juan de Fuca Festival also has a mobile app with schedules, a map, and performer and vendor information.
