Festival FAQ

Where is the Festival?
The Juan de Fuca Festival takes place on the beautiful North Olympic Peninsula in Port Angeles, Washington…where the Olympic Mountains meet the Strait of Juan de Fuca and we have a perfect view of our Canadian neighbors on clear days. In 2020 we are proud to host five performance stages:

The Main Stage, Chamber Stage and street fair are located at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 East 4th St.

The Elks Ballroom (Elks Stage 3) and Lounge (Elks Stage 2) are located at 131 East 1st St.

Our newest venue is in the stunning gallery of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center which is located at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

A complimentary shuttle runs between all three locations every half hour (SAT/SUN only).

Can I Bring My dog?
Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on festival grounds (with the exception of service dogs).
