The 2021 Juan de Fuca Festival

A Reimagined celebration!

This 4-day festival is Port Angeles’ premier music event. The 2021 Juan de Fuca Festival will be held, as always, over Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-31.

This year’s festival will be presented in a hybrid format with both virtual & in-person events & experiences.

JFFA not only celebrates the legacy that this event has become over the years, but the community that it represents and serves.

It’s one of our favorite things to host performers, artisans, food vendors, and community partners at the Annual Juan de Fuca Festival. JFFA has offered a vibrant music and art festival on the beautiful North Olympic Peninsula in Washington State since 1992. Stay tuned for additional information on how to participate in the 2021 Juan de Fuca Festival. Updates and details on both virtual and in-person offerings will be available shortly.
