The Juan de Fuca Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and what an amazing journey it’s been! We’re particularly proud of the fact that even as it’s grown from its relatively modest beginnings to its place today as one of the great west coast festivals, the Juan de Fuca Festival still retains its charming small-town roots.
Long recognized for the diversity and sheer quality of its performing artists, the Festival is really outdoing itself in 2018. In honor of our anniversary we are bringing back some of our favorite artists from the early years of the festival. Longtime attendees will remember folks like Laura Love, Pearl Django, Christian Swenson, Tiller’s Folly, Scott Cossu, Casey Neill, Carolyn Cruso and more. Also joining us are some special favorites from more recent times including the incredible MarchFourth, The Sam Chase, Curtis Salgado, Ballet Victoria, the Too Loose Cajun/Zydeco Band, David Jacobs-Strain and Halie Loren. And, of course, we are so excited about some brand new artists to our Festival, although certainly not new to the national and international Festival circuit — folks like Con Brio, Royal Jelly Jive, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Keith Greeninger, World’s Finest, Rosie and the Riveters, Mouths of Babes, Deep Blue Jam and so many more. With four different stages, the biggest frustration will surely be an inability to be at more than one place at the same time.
Other features include a lively street fair featuring food and artisan booths, an outdoor beer/wine garden, morning Yoga and “After Hours in the Clubs” where the music keeps on going after all the festival stages close down. Topping it all off is the magical location – nestled between the majestic beauty of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca! There’s something for everyone!
Camping: For the first time ever you’ll have the opportunity to CAMP near the festival grounds! For just $10/person/night you can set up a tent at Civic Field on Race St! They restrooms will be open and there’s PLENTY of space available. Folks can check in and pay at the gate.
