Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Workshop - 2016

Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Workshop

 

Party down in Port Townsend in August with live music all around town, Shakespeare in the Park and summer fairs for the whole family. You won’t want to miss a minute!

The Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival heats up the park with “Blues in the Clubs” as a moveable feast of great music for all ages in various venues at Fort Worden State Park. One nightly wristband gives you the freedom to move around to all the venues throughout the evening, gaining the full benefit of the club experience. Centrum’s Blues faculty will play sets in all sorts of interesting combinations on Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4 from 8 pm – midnight. For more information, go to www.centrum.org.

Rock out at the Trail Blaze Ball on Saturday, August 4 at Memorial Field in downtown Port Townsend. The fun starts at 4 pm with live local bands playing and from 7 – 10 pm, the rockin’, rollickin’ sounds of FreddyPink will have you dancing the night away. Food trucks with a local beer, cider and wine garden will be available along with trail outfitters and vendor booths. The evening is open to all ages with a suggested donation of $20 at the gate in support of the Olympic Peninsula’s magnificent Olympic Discovery Trail. https://olympicdiscoverytrail.org/odt-event/

In a Viking saga of love, honor and betrayal, Key City Public Theatre is proud to present the tragedy of the Prince of Denmark in Hamlet at Shakespeare in the Park. Taken back to 932AD, Hamlet is reimagined as a saga where thanes and raiders seek fortune, power, and ultimately, a seat in the hallowed halls of Valhalla.

Directed by Marc Weinblatt, Hamlet features a cast loaded with KCPT mainstays and promises a thrilling take on the most famous of the bard’s work.

Performances run Aug. 3 through 26, outdoors in beautiful Chetzemoka Park (Jackson and Blaine Streets), Fridays through Sundays at 6 pm. All performances are Pay-What-You-Wish at the gate, with advance tickets costing $29, available at the playhouse box office at 360.385.KCPT (5278) or online at http://www.keycitypublictheatre.org/.

Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating on the grass and to dress warmly for when the sun goes down. Picnic fare is welcome. Concessions will also be sold.

The dock is still rockin’ for a few more weeks at the free, all-ages, outdoor Concerts on the Dock in downtown Port Townsend. Sponsored by the Port Townsend Main Street Program, the concerts will be Thursdays, August 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, at the Pope Marine Park/City Dock Civic Plaza. Local vendors and a beer, wine and cider garden will contribute to the festive atmosphere. Help us “Go Green” this year by renting a reusable cup during the concert and returning it at the end of the show. So far this has dramatically reduced the amount plastic used at each concert. Seating opens at 4:30 pm, show starts at 5 pm and ends at 7:30 pm. Bring a chair or a blanket and settle in for some great tunes. For the list of bands, go to http://www.ptmainstreet.org/page14/page14.html.

The Jefferson County Fair welcomes you to this year’s Bug Up-themed fair, August 10, 11 and 12. Meet farm animals up close. Cheer on riders as they put their horses through their paces. See the largest fruits, vegetables and flowers grown in Jefferson County. Hear music from fantastic bands and get your dancin’ boots on. Take a turn at riding the bull. Indulge in an elephant ear or a corn dog. Or watch the demo derby or mud drag. It’s everything a country fair should be—don’t miss it!

Open 10 am to 9 pm Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm Sunday. For more details and ticket info, visit http://jeffcofairgrounds.com.

The Olympic Music Festival (OMF) presents its 35th annual summer season in partnership with Centrum at Fort Worden. World-class chamber music performances take place at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm, August 11 through September 19. Programming also includes a free educational concert for children and their families on August 26 at 11 am.

Since the beginning of his tenure in 2014, OMF Artistic Director Julio Elizalde has electrified audiences by presenting world-class artists on the Olympic Peninsula in programs that center on the classical chamber music repertoire and, on occasion, venture into styles such as American folk music and jazz. To purchase tickets and for more detailed information about the performances, go to www.olympicmusicfestival.org or call 360.385.9699.

Key City Public Theatre will celebrate its 60th birthday on August 14 with a fun and fabulous dance party. The party will start at 7 pm at Chetzemoka Park—dance til dusk on the Hamlet set with the Prince of Denmark himself!

June in Port Townsend

June 4, 2018 by bluegullinn

 

 

 

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 of the Tour de Forts, to the Brass Screw Confederacy Steampunk Hootenanny, to the Taste of Port Townsend event for foodies, and music galore with Centrum. We know you’ll love the adventure of surprise and delight when you join the fun!

And for those of you who love all things water, June is for you! Be part of the exhilarating send-off of the participants in the incredible 4th Annual Race to Alaska (R2AK), and don’t miss Port Townsend Orca Festival at Fort Worden.

The Port Townsend Wednesday Farmers Market opens June 6, at its new location, the Jefferson Transit Haines Place Park and Ride, from 2 -6 pm. The market season is in full swing with the Saturday Farmers Market Uptown from 9 am to 2 pm.

With the new Haines Place Park and Ride location, the Wednesday Farmers Market can be easily accessed from anywhere in the Jefferson County. Try taking transit to the market or walk, bike, hop or drive to the new location of the mid-week farm and food market. There’s plenty of parking and you can stroll from Uptown through Kah Tai Lagoon to get to the market.

This season there are more vendors registered for the Port Townsend Wednesday Farmers Market than in years. Here are 15 reasons to visit on opening day: Mountain Spirit Herbal Company, Duckabush Mushrooms, Spring Rain Farm & Orchard, Fiddlehead Creamery, Finnriver Farm, Serendipity Farm, Midori Farm, Hopscotch Farm + Cannery, Chimacum Valley Dairy, Bob’s Bakery, River Run Farm, Cape Cleare Fishery, Golden Harvest, Onatrue Farm, and Hurricane Hills Winery, plus a chef demonstration with Arran Stark at the opening day market. For more info, go to www.jcfmarkets.org.

The Port Townsend Main Street Program celebrates the Tastes of Port Townsend on June 7 from 5-8 pm at the Northwest Maritime Center. Foodies will enjoy delicious samples from 14 restaurants and dessert spots, breweries, wineries and cideries, plus tea and coffee.

From green curry chicken, seafood risotto, sushi, smokehouse sliders, smoked sockeye Nova Lox with cream cheese, salads and desserts, the many tastes will delight diners. There are new participants this year, including Finistere, Banana Leaf Thai Bistro, Port Townsend Vineyards, and Key City Fish Company. 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. For more info and to purchase tickets, go to www.ptmainstreet.org.

Key City Public Theatre presents Daddy Long Legs, running Thursday through Sunday from June 8 through July 2. An adaptation of the 1912 novel of the same name by Jean Webster, this is the latest in many stage and film adaptations, and the most-true to the original work. Written in 2007, with music and lyrics by Paul Gordon, Daddy Long Legs is a two-person epistolary musical about a young orphan girl and her mysterious benefactor who empowers her through providing her with a college education. KCPT is opening the first West Coast production of Daddy Long Legs since the closing of its successful off-Broadway run in 2016.

For more info and to purchase tickets, go to www.keycitypublictheatre.org.

Join the Brass Screw Confederacy, for its seventh annual Steampunk Festival, June 8-10. Embark upon Perilous Adventures to exotic domains on the outskirts of imagination. Come decked out in your steampunk finery for another amazing year’s adventures. And while, this may not be the biggest, fanciest, first, nor certainly not the last steampunk something-or-other on earth—there is something to steam up ingenues and aficionados alike. You won’t be disappointed. This year’s event aims to rock you back on your boot heels and steam up your goggles. They’re turning it up with the Hottest Hootenanny ever, Tactical Croquet, the stupendous Bazaar of the Bizarre, Brass Screw Chautauqua, bands, magic and mayhem galore! For more details about what to expect, go to www.brassscrew.org.

Tour de Forts 2018 is a stunning ride on June 9, beginning at 8 am, that takes cyclists of all ages and abilities on a scenic and historic trip around the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula. Along the way, water and snack stops allow cyclists to enjoy the view from three old seaside forts that have been converted to beautiful state parks. Routes include a 62-mile, 35-mile, 15-mile and 11-mile options. To register, go to www.tourdeforts.org.

Centrum is hosting the 9th annual Chamber Music Workshop with a free public master class on Wednesday, June 13 at 7:30 pm. Student concerts are on June 15 and 16 at 7:30 pm with a faculty performance on Sunday, June 17 at 2 pm featuring composers Haydn, Mieczyslaw Weinberg and Shostakovich. The Workshop closes with a performance with Grammy-winning Pacifica Quartet (pictured above). All performances are in Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden.

R2AK (short for the Race to Alaska) is simple. Get a boat without a motor. Race 750 miles to Ketichan, Alaska, any way you can. Don’t get eaten by a bear. $10,000 if you’re first.

The starting gun goes off at 0500 (nautical lingo for 5 am!) on Thursday, June 14, from the NW
Maritime Center in Port Townsend. The excitement of the start is palpable and not to be missed. But if that’s too early for you, come for the Pre-Race Ruckus on Wednesday, June 13, from noon to 8 pm and let loose like you’re about to sail to Alaska…with people who actually are about to set sail for Alaska! Bring your sense of adventure. Get a free tattoo. Have a blast. To join the fun and track the boats once they’re en route, go to www.r2ak.com.

Don’t miss 2018 Port Townsend Orca Festival at Fort Worden on June 23. A day of celebration, education, ceremony and adventure! Featured speakers from the Governor’s Orca Recovery Task Force, researchers from Ocean Initiative, Long Live the Kings, and the North Olympic Salmon Coalition – and then famed rock/ska band Locust Street Taxi performs starting at 1PM. Festival awards ceremony at 2PM will honor winners of the Rat Island Regatta and JPod Scavenger hunt, as well as Governor Jay Inslee for his long-term dedication and support of the Southern Resident Orcas of Puget Sound (Gov. Inslee will not be present). With all this followed by a song and dance by the North Olympic Orca Pod and a celebration of Finn the salmon’s 30th year anniversary, this year’s award ceremony will be one for the history books. http://ptorcafest.com.

The first of Centrum’s Free Friday Concerts begin at noon on Friday, June 29 at Fort Worden, outdoors on the Nora Porter Commons Lawn and lasts for an hour. http://centrum.org/free-fridays-at-the-fort/

Get your dancin’ shoes on and polka dot attire ready for Centrum’s Honky-Tonk Polka Dot Dance, Thursday, June 28 at 8 pm in the USO Building at Fort Worden featuring a variety of talented vocalists singing tunes from a range of traditions including Irish, Appalachia, Country, Blues and Gospel. This sells out quickly, so don’t delay and buy your tickets today at www.centrum.org.

Join the fun and Party at the Plaza on Saturday, June 30 from 3-6 pm across Water Street from the Jefferson Museum of Art and History. The party is coordinated by the Port Townsend Main Street Promotion Committee and volunteers to celebrate the completion of construction on Water Street. Dance to music with DJ Caleb Peacock, enjoy nibbles and fun for all ages. For more info, go to www.ptmainstreet.org.

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.

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.

OUR MISSION: INSPIRING CONSERVATION OF THE SALISH SEA

Marine Science Center – Port Townsend. The Port Townsend Marine Science Center (PTMSC) is an educational and scientific organization devoted to understanding and conserving our marine and shoreline environment.

Through its various programs, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center:

  • Creates active and involving educational experiences for groups, with a particular emphasis on youth;
  • Provides exhibits, programs, and publications featuring local marine and shoreline habitat, history, flora, and fauna;
  • Encourages meaningful volunteer experiences in PTMSC activities;
  • Provides citizen science opportunities for the general public;
  • Partners and cooperates with other organizations dedicated to the conservation of Puget Sound and the NW Straits;
  • Encourages understanding of and participation in local, national, and international decisions impacting the marine and shoreline environment.

OUR HISTORY

The Port Townsend Marine Science Center was founded in 1982 by two teachers and was initially run entirely by volunteers. Over the years the science center has continued to grow in a steady, thoughtful manner, and its volunteers, now numbering more than 100, are still integrally involved in the organization. Throughout its development, PTMSC has remained committed to its mission of inspring conservation of the Salish Sea.

•The Mask You Live In, Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m. Wheeler Theatre, Fort Worden, FREE!
•PTFF Great Big Gala, Sun., Feb 28, with radio host Luke Burbank, NW Maritime Center

First Tuesday Salon, Carol

“American-born English playwright Phyllis Nagy wrote the first draft of the script in 1996. Almost 20 years and many drafts later, we have Todd Haynes’ immaculate, dream-like Carol–in which Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara take us inside a passionate story of desire and retribution that’s both satisfying and disturbing.” Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald. Read more HERE.

Join us for a conversation with poet and professor Kate Reavey, following the screening. Kate’s work as a poet has taken her around the world, with a fellowship to study in Florence as she pursues her doctorate in literature. Her work at Peninsula College helps other poets find and refine their voices.

The film, Carol, is based on the novel, The Price of Salt. Author Patricia Highsmith became well known for her “poison pen” with disdain for Jews, blacks and homosexuals. The novel was written in her early career, and thought to be autobiographical.

Watch the trailer: HERE.
