What better place to celebrate love than Port Townsend? Over the years, our city has received many accolades from the media naming us the “best of….” Most recently, in 2017, we were named by Architectural Digest as “One of the 15 Most Beautiful Main Streets Across America” and MSN named Port Townsend the “Prettiest Town in Washington.”

With that in mind, we welcome you to come downtown and show your love for our fair city by penning a Love Letter to Port Townsend. You can write a poem, a love letter, or simply list the three things you love most about Port Townsend. Select restaurants and coffee shops will have entry forms. Please enter by February 14 to win prizes.

Concierges are ready to assist you!

On Saturdays, Port Townsend have friendly “Celebrity Concierges” roaming Water Street, from 1-3 pm, offering suggestions for things to do and see, giving directions and answering questions. They’ll be providing coupon books and maps to help you get around downtown. Be sure to look for them!

From now through June, the “Believe It or Knot!” game will pique your interest in unbelievable facts (or fiction) about our salty seaport. From the 1890s Victorian seaport to modern day, the past and present of Port Townsend will have you questioning whether you believe it or “knot.”

Hidden throughout downtown are incredible facts (true or false!) about our city. Find 10 of them at participating businesses. Try your hand to see how well you know your facts about Port Townsend by completing the game to be entered in prize drawings–$100 in monthly gift certificates and a chance to win a grand prize of $500 in gift certificates to spend in downtown businesses. And be sure to tag any of your photos on Instagram or Facebook with #ILovePortTownsend!

Key City Playhouse

Key City Playhouse

Key City Public Theatre will kick off its 60th anniversary season with the Northwest Premiere of the critically-acclaimed, one-woman play, “Spirit Awakening,” written, directed and performed by Akuyoe Graham, at the KCPT Playhouse February 9, 10, 16, and 17 at 7 pm with Saturday matinees at 2 pm.

Capturing how Ms. Graham evolved as a human being and performer, an immigrants and a woman, this mythic story is effused with power and strength, sensitivity and emotion as the supremely skilled Graham creates 12 distinct personalities that segue into one another with seamless brilliance as her life takes her from Africa to London to Spanish Harlem and eventually Hollywood. Each step provokes new levels of personal assessment, raising complex questions of split loyalties and the difficulties of rediscovering one’s roots, unimpeded by dogma. One film/theatre critic described her as a “mystic in the theatre, a sage on the screen.”

On January 1, 2016 CAM will once again be participating in the State Parks First Day Hike Program. Coast Artillery Museum – Port Townsend. We’ll be starting near Battery Randol/Memory’s Vault at the top of Artillery Hill. This year we’ll be doing it a little differently. We’ll give a brief historical talk, then provide people with a pamphlet that provides a self-guided walking tour. That way people can take as long as they want, and cover as much of the area as they’d like. We’ll also provide at least one guided tour at 1 PM, plus additional talks and self-guided tour information as people show up until 3PM. Bring a flashlight if possible, cell phone flashlights will do, and people can share a light if necessary.

Coast Artillery Museum – Port Townsend. If we have enough volunteers current plans are to also have the Harbor Entrance Control Post open for tours, and we may start everything there. If so there will be signs directing people to the HECP from Memory’s Vault, it’s about 100 yards away.

The Coast Artillery Museum is open every day.

The museum is located in Building 201 (one of the original 1904 Barracks) next to the Park Office at Fort Worden. It is open 365 days/year 11 a.m.–4 p.m. Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend we have extended hours on Fridays and Saturdays: 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission: Effective April 1, 2013 rates are $4 adults, $2 ages 6-12, and a $10 family value package covering 2 generations. Admission is free for children ages 5 and younger and active duty service members. Effective August 15, 2014 partners and dependents of active duty military service members pay half price. Group rates are available for students, scouts and similar organizations by prior arrangement. Please Contact the Museum.

Help support Washington State Parks, purchase a Discover Pass. Passes are available at (click on the names for a Google Map) the Friends of Fort Worden Gift Shop (in their new location), the Coast Artillery Museum at Fort Worden, the Marine Science Center at Fort Worden, the Registration Desk in the Commons, and some other Fort Worden Partners for $30 without any additional charges so you save $5. Because the Partners sell the Pass at cost without any markup, some only take cash or checks. The Coast Artillery Museum, the Gift Shop and the Registration Desk in the Commons can accept credit cards.

Visit Fortworden.org for information about accommodations and events at the Fort.

Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day the Harbor Entrance Control Post will be open for tours on Saturdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, and there is a free, guided Walking Tour of Artillery Hill beginning at 1 PM on Saturdays, starting in the grassy field near Battery Randol. The walking tour covers 1-1.5 miles and can last up to 2 hours if people are interested, but you’re welcome to join up or leave at any time. A flashlight is advised, but not required. Donations are always appreciated, we have a box at the HECP when it’s open, and always at the Museum. Occasional extra days are scheduled, please see our Upcoming Events page for details.

The tours are also available for groups at any time by special arrangement, please call the Museum at (360) 385-0373 to discuss it. For those unable to walk to the top of the hill, you can check in at the Park office and present a Washington State disabled parking pass or equivalent to make arrangements to drive to the top of the hill. You will still need to be able to navigate uneven ground and some stairs to make the tour itself.

 

For information about other events at Fort Worden, and for reservation information please see FortWorden.org.

Visit Port Townsend in June. Port Townsend is all abuzz with excitement about super-cool events this month. We’re serving up something for every appetite—with a cycling ride from Fort to Fort, to the Brass Screw Confederacy Steampunk Hootenanny, to the Tastes of Port Townsend event for foodies. We know you’ll love the adventure of surprise and delight when you join the fun!

And for those of you craving all things maritime, start the month off with Key City Public Theatre’s “Shipwrecked!” Catch your breath when the wind fills the sails of the stunning wooden boats in the Classic Mariners’ Regatta, and be part of the exhilarating send-off of the participants in the incredible 2nd Annual Race to Alaska!

Key City Public Theatre presents Shipwrecked! The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as told by himself)—an epic entertainment by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Marguilies, running from June 2 through July 3, 2016. Prepare to be swept away in a high seas adventure, populated by a monstrous man-eating octopus, flying wombats, giant sea turtles, cannibals, and buried treasure—“a story all the more remarkable because every word is true!”

The adventurous Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left nineteenth-century England spellbound. This audacious autobiographer and entertainer blurs the line between fact and fiction, enrapturing the audience in a story of the high seas. “The breathless story of a seafaring wanderer springs to life like a theatrical pop-up book.” –The New York Times. For more info and to purchase tickets, go to www.keycitypublictheatre.org.

The Classic Mariners’ Regatta, June 3-5, 2016, is beautiful wooden boats, high-caliber sailors racing their hearts out, and a friendly atmosphere that is more pot luck than yacht club. Since 1984, the Classic Mariners’ Regatta has animated Port Townsend Bay with the Wooden Boat Foundation spirit that is quintessentially Port Townsend. With hand-sewn award pennants and dinner in the Wooden Boat Foundation boat shop, this is a regatta weekend not to miss.

This event draws classic wooden boats from across the state to race, rub elbows and celebrate the beauty of wooden boats.

The weekend kicks off with a welcoming gathering on Friday night. Saturday brings two races, the first starting at noon and the second one commencing immediately after. The final sailboat race will start at noon on Sunday and the weekend concludes with an awards ceremony at 5pm pm. www.nwmaritime.org/events/classic-mariners-regatta/

It will be more of an evening party centered on local tastes which reflect our amazing culinary scene,” says Mari Mullen, executive director of the Port Townsend Main Street Program. This event is a fundraiser for the Port Townsend Main Street Program, a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to the historic districts Uptown and Downtown. This is a 21+ event, please bring valid ID.

Along the way, stop and take in the view at up to three old seaside forts that have been converted to beautiful state parks. Cyclists will also get to enjoy the first day of the Chimacum Farmers market, and browse fresh produce from local farms as they hydrate and snack. Routes include a 35-mile, 62-mile, and 100-mile options, as well as a shorter “fun ride” for beginning bikers. Multiple water and snack stops are provided and you can look forward to festivities at the end! To register, go towww.tourdeforts.org.

The Brass Screw Confederacy occupies Port Townsend June 10-12, 2016, with the steamiest, zaniest, most creative Steampunk event to date. This is “Year 5,” a celebration of the bodger and the Patent: Approved year. Step into the Bodgers’ Grand Exhibition where makers and mad genius display their marvelous contraptions and creative skills. Imagine your high school science fair unburdened of such vulgar constraints as physics or reality. Steampunk Hovercraft, tanks, and a great variety of other contraptions to discover, plus…

As in years past, the Brass Screw Confederacy aims to rock you back on your boot heels and steam up your goggles. They’re bringing you the hottest Saturday night Hootenanny ever, featuring The Cog Is Dead from Daytona Beach, FL and Seattle’s steamiest Nathaniel Johnstone Band. Perennial favorites including Tactical Croquet, burlesque, the amply expanded Bazaar of the Bizarre, the Brass Screw Chautauqua, bands, magic and mayhem galore! Tickets available at the 607 Water Street. Seewww.brass-screw.org for a list of times, locations and schedule of events.

The Race to Alaska (R2AK) was born in the spirit of tradition, exploration and the lawless self-reliance that defines the sea-faring journey through the Inside Passage. 750 miles. No motors. No support. All the way to Alaska. R2AK is the first of its kind and North America’s longest human and wind-powered race. First place is $10,000 and second place is a set of steak knives.

The race starting horn blares at 6am on Thursday, June 23, 2016, with public viewing areas open at the Northwest Maritime Center.

R2AK is like the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning, or being run down by a freighter, or being swallowed by a whirlpool. There are squalls, killer whales and tidal currents that run upwards of 20 miles per hour. There’s also some of the most beautiful scenery on earth—as well as a wicked block party to kick the insanity off!

The night before, the R2AK Pre-Race Ruckus is Wednesday, June 22, 2016, from 3-8pm. The Ruckus is free and open to everyone. Beyond great food, drinks, and Seattle soul band Down North performing, the Ruckus will also feature a fire-hose rodeo, various feats of strength, free R2AK tattoos (yep, the permanent kind), and your chance to check out all the amazing race boats—including a 70’ trimaran that may very well break the world record for fastest time to Alaska! To join the fun and track the boats once they’re en route, go to www.r2ak.com.

"The Run that Cares for the Runner"

Looking for a place to stay in Port Townsend either before or after the run. Try the Blue Gull Inn B&B, located in Historic Uptown. Two of our guest rooms have whirlpool bath tubs. Great for soaking. Have a bubble bath and relax. Enjoy a great sit down breakfast the next morning. Blue Gull Inn B&B was built is 1868 and is one of the first homes built in Port Townsend. If you remember your US history, that was 3 years after the end of the Civil War.

RACE STARTS 11:00am, May 22, 2016!

The Jefferson Healthcare Rhody Run will be celebrating its 38th year in 2016 and is one of the Northwest’s best-loved races. Although we’ve grown a lot since the first Rhody Run in 1979, this race is still very much a community event. From the hundreds of volunteers who help out as race officials to the throngs of local residents who line the streets to cheer on every runner, we are both proud of and humbled by the enthusiastic community support that we receive year after year. Without this support the Jefferson Healthcare Rhody Run would be impossible.

Fountain Cafe Historic Building

Fountain Cafe is located in the Mary Webster historical building at 920 Washington Street, just a few steps up from Haller Fountain and a short walk from Water Street. Mary Webster building is dated 1889 atop the street facade. Its mint green color is distinctive among the nearby buildings. Its front door is recessed in a small alcove above three steps accessed from the slopping sidewalk, which leads down to the nearby Haller Fountain. The simple green building is to Port Townsend’s Victorian homes as a Quaker gathering place is to a church cathedral. Without the lavish filigree of the uptown homes, the simple lines of the Mary Webster building reflects the simpler life of the downtown architecture.
