Summer happenings in Port Gamble

Get ready for Port Gamble Summer Faire Aug. 11

We are pleased to announce that the second annual family-fun event set to take place on Saturday Aug. 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Port Gamble Summer Faire boasts a fun-filled afternoon of activities, shopping, farmer’s market, live music by the Port Gamble Maritime Music Festival now in its 13th year. We even have some interesting animals coming out including raptors from the West Sound Wildlife Shelter, and pets from the local shelter Rescue Every Dog. Find all of the details at

Raptor rhapsody

Visit with West Sound Wildlife Shelter’s resident raptors — barred owls, a great-horned owl, a red-tail hawk, an American kestrel, a peregrine falcon, and a turkey vulture. All of these wildlife ambassadors are well known for inspiring and engaging adults and children alike! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about common raptors of the Pacific Northwest and their habitats in the beautiful setting of Port Gamble. While you are visiting the raptors and Summer Faire, add a side trip with a short trail walk and see the Shelter’s future home! For details about the West Sound Wildlife Shelter, visit
