Port Townsend: Enhancement Days coming to Fort Worden this weekend

PORT TOWNSEND — The third of Fort Worden’s four celebrations marking its 100 year anniversary begins Friday.

Enhancement Days will feature free performances, wildlife cruises, scenic volkswalking courses, and art events in honor of the former U.S. Army fort.

The celebration runs until Oct. 20.

“The festival celebrates the preservation of the fort as a national historic landmark and the park’s evolution into a model of recreation and arts-education collaboration,” Assistant Park Manager Steve Shively said Tuesday.

“We’ve been really happy with the turnout at the previous events, and hope this will build on that,” he said.

More than 10,000 people turned out July 4 during the “Centennial Days” celebration.

The first centennial event was held in May — the last will be Grand Memory Days, which takes place Dec. 6 to Dec. 8 and celebrates the fort’s heyday.
