Tickets on sale for StreamFest event

PORT ANGELES — Tickets for North Olympic Land Trust’s StreamFest smorgasbord will be available starting Wednesday.

The smorgasbord is part of the 10th annual StreamFest, which will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 30 on land near Ennis Creek in Port Angeles.

The smorgasbord, served from noon to 3 p.m., will offer a greater variety of foods than in the previous nine StreamFests, volunteer coordinator Jerri Coen said.

Each $15 ticket covers salmon grilled by chef Jamison Brandt, Alder Wood Bistro’s farmers market salad, Ennis Arbor Farm new potatoes prepared by Bushwhacker Restaurant, Sunny Farms Tendy’s General Tso’s chicken and vegetables, Sabai Thai’s green curry chicken and vegetables and local bakery bread.

Admission to StreamFest itself is free.

Variety of activities

StreamFest will offer nature walks, educational booths and other environmental awareness activities, a Procession of the Species parade for people who want to wear masks or costumes they make to represent favorite animals and plants, live music by Washington Old Time Fiddlers and Hurricane Brass Septet and a silent auction.

Entry is opposite Peninsula Golf Club, 824 Lindberg Road, Port Angeles.

All Points Charters and Tours and 7 Cedars Casino again will provide free shuttles from the Eagles parking lot at U.S. Highway 101 and Penn Street in Port Angeles.

People power

People choosing to travel as “people powered participants” — by walking, running or bicycling — will be eligible to enter a drawing for prizes donated by North Olympic Discovery Marathon.

Available for separate purchase throughout the day will be berry cobbler with ice cream and a variety of beverages, including wines from Olympic Cellars Winery, beer from Harbinger Brewery and Winery, coffee from Princess Valiant and lemonade from Joy’s Wine Bistro.

Also donating coordination for the smorgasbord are Joy Siemion, owner of Joy’s Wine Bistro; Julie Grattan, co-owner of Good to Go Grocery; Kathy Charlton, co-owner of Olympic Cellars Winery; and Hearst Coen.

Support local growers

Siemion said she donates her time because she thinks it is important to celebrate and support producers of local foods and beverages and other local businesses.

“I also like helping North Olympic Land Trust raise money so land always will be available for agriculture as well as habitat for salmon and all the other qualities the organization protects,” she said.

Siemion also is leading the effort to reduce StreamFest’s waste. This year’s focus is on obtaining metal forks, spoons and plastic glasses that can be washed in a dishwasher.

She encouraged people who want to donate utensils to contact the land trust office.

The event already uses washable plates and napkins. Food waste goes to farm animals and compost piles.

The StreamFest site is one of some 60 properties that the land trust permanently protects.

Through legal agreements with property owners or ownership of land, the land trust protects wildlife habitat, farmland, timberland, clean water and air, scenic vistas, open space and cultural heritage lands.

Food and drink sale proceeds enable the land trust to reduce or cover costs of completing permanent legal agreements for landowners who need financial assistance with related costs, said Greg Good, the nonprofit organization’s executive director.

Tickets to the smorgasbord can be purchased at Port Book and News and Arthur D. Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles, Pacific Mist Books in Sequim and Sunny Farms Country Store’s Farm and Garden Store between the two cities.

A form for purchasing tickets with e-mailed credit card information or a mailed check will be available by Aug. 10 at the land trust’s Web site, or by phoning the office at 360-417-1815.

Information about making silent auction donations for goods and services and volunteering at StreamFest also is available from the land trust office.
