It’s a wonderful world of music and art out there.

The ninth annual Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts continues today and Monday with a wide array of musical, dramatic and educational activities.

Some of festival highlights today include West African, Irish, Cuban and American bluegrass music.

Storytelling, NASA lectures and poetry readings will also occur throughout the day.

The festival stages are located at the Vern Burton Community Center, Masonic Hall and, for teen-agers, the former Aggie’s restaurant.

Hands-on programs for children, fine arts, crafts, foods and dance performance workshops continue.

During the four-day celebration, principally sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News, six stages presenting 125 performances promise to entertain residents of the North Olympic Peninsula.

Tickets are on sale for $10 per day at the festival gates. For more information, visit the festival’s Web site at or call 360-457-5411.

Directions and maps of venues are also available on the Web site.
