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.

The Second Weekend Art Walk in Port Angeles, August 9th, is going to be great! Cabled Fiber Studio will be celebrating the creativity of surface design artist Sue Nylander of Sequim.
Sue’s unique one-of-a-kind garments and art quilts are interpretations of numerous traditional techniques she applies to contemporary uses.
Fascinated with art history, especially Asian and African cultures, and traditionally under-appreciated fiber arts created by women, she has made a life-time commitment to studying and sharing numerous techniques through her artwork, fashion and trunk shows, and teaching.
We are very pleased to host her one woman show and tell. Come early to view her works of wonder and join us for the reception at 6:30.
