Events in Downtown come in many forms. Many are sponsored and/or produced by the Downtown Association's Promotion Committee throughout the year. In addition, our members often have an in-store event that they would like to promote and there are events created by various civic organizations that are centered in the "Heart of the Community... Downtown". We hope you enjoy your time in Downtown Port Angeles and will return often.
Saturday & Wednesday Markets at the Gateway 10:00-2:00

2nd Friday Art Rock
2nd Friday Art Rock (2FAR) gets loose. On Friday, September 12, 2013, at 8:00pm come to Bar N9NE for a high energy 2FAR event featuring Port Angeles band Walter Lee and the White Boys and Port Angeles artist Jeff Tocher.
Walter Lee and the White Boys plays some solid tunes drawn from an eclectic mix of inspired sources. Walter Lee and the White Boys will certainly show you a good time.
Local artist Jeff Tocher will capture the 2FAR evening through painting. In his paintings, which can be seen across the Olympic Peninsula and the world, Jeff explores the ‘true nature of nature,’ using his unique expressionistic style to fill canvases with wit, wonder and whimsy. He has become a dynamic and prolific live painter since he started teaming up with live bands for performances over four years ago (at a 2FAR event). Jeff has a knack for capturing moments and filling canvases, often creating more colors than minutes spent painting.
Kick start the Second Weekend Art Event in Port Angeles by coming to Bar N9NE (229 West 1st Street, Port Angeles) for drinks, food, music, art, and great times on Friday, September 12th. Walter Lee and the White Boys and Jeff Tocher will get the 2FAR dance-party going at 8:00pm. The $3 cover charge will help support the musicians and artist.
