Juan de Fuca Festival Postponed until 2021

It’s one of our favorite things to host performers, artisans, food vendors, and community partners at the Annual Juan de Fuca Festival. We are deeply saddened to announce that this year’s celebration is canceled. With the latest health and safety guidelines, we determined that it is in the best interest and well-being of our community to pause the festival in 2020 and continue being diligent in slowing the spread of COVID-19. JFFA has been a vibrant music and art festival for 27 years and we are confident that it will return better than ever in May 2021.

Touring artists that perform during our season concert series often connect with our community in other meaningful ways such as: workshops, master classes, lecture demonstrations and school shows.

Summer Arts Camps

JFFA offers a week long art-focused camp each summer for youth ages 8-12. This is the second consecutive year that JFFA will be collaborating with Turning the Wheel Productions to facilitate this experience.

Community Arts Project 

With grant and community support, JFFA is proudly partnering with the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula to increase access to youth arts education and, ultimately, generate a community art project to be exhibited at the 2020 JFFA Festival.
