Summertide Solstice Art Festival
June 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - June 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Celebrate the longest day of the year at a summer solstice arts festival in Port Angeles, Washington. This free, family friendly event happens every June. The Summertide Solstice Art Festival is an arts and culture event centering around Webster’s Woods at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. This annual festival features live music, hands-on nature activities, poetry readings, self-guided park tours and poetry walks, and food & drink vendors throughout the afternoon.
New Art Installations at a Port Angeles Outdoor Art Park
Celebrate the installation of new art in Webster’s Woods Outdoor Sculpture Park. Wander the trails to view our newest open-air art installations in Webster’s Woods Sculpture Park and take along our scavenger hunt and park map to find more than 100 existing works of art nestled into five acres of rugged second-growth forest.
Poetry in the Park
18 original poems curated by the Olympic Peninsula Authors group. Visitors will be able to meet the poetry authors and enjoy live readings at a Poetry Café in the gallery courtyard, or enjoy a self-guided poetry walk through the park.
Additionally, you’re invited to contribute to our community nature weaving, design a playful solstice crown, and learn a few exciting printmaking techniques.
Finally, wind down with live music from the meadow deck throughout the event. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to be serenaded or dance along with musicians Jack Dwyer and Elena Loper.
THIS EVENT IS FREE (OR CONSIDER GIVING A DONATION) AND IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT
