Event Summary
2019 will be our 26th annual festival.  After all these 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.  The Street Fair no longer includes re-sellers, and invites artisans and food vendors only.

General Information
This year we will be utilizing a rolling jury.  Returning artisan vendors will be exempt from the juried process.  All re-sell vendors will be replaced with new artisans so we encourage you to apply.  We have LOADS of space available.
