Event Summary
2018 represents the 25th Anniversary of Port Angeles' Juan de Fuca Festival.  After 25 years, this remarkable event has grown into one of the great festivals in the Pacific Northwest.  Held over four days during Memorial Day Weekend, the festival  features over 80 performances on four showcase stages. Located on the Olympic Peninsula, the festival is nestled between the majestic beauty of Olympic National Park and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Aside from the music, the Festival is particularly known for its outstanding Street Fair. New in 2018, the Street Fair will no longer include re-sellers, and will invite artisans and food vendors only.
