Early History of Port Townsend, WA

The City of Dreams, Port Townsend, WA is one of the finest examples of a Victorian Seaport in the United States. It is one of 3 Registered Victorian Seaports in the US. The other 2 are Cape May, NJ and Galveston, TX.

Like many small towns in the Northwest. Port Townsend described itself as the “Key City” and the “New York of the West” It quickly became a bustling seaport and customs gateway of the Pacific Northwest. Located right on the water at the entrance of Puget Sound, it was very visible from the water. Many boaters even today find Port Townsend

by boat. It had an impressive downtown, many of the commercial building were built of brick and stone and many elegant Victorian homes on the hillside above. It must have been very inviting town as you passed by, especially after months at sea.

Port Townsend was a very wild town in the day. Much of downtown was brothels and bars. Tunnels run under the downtown area. Many of the bars had trap doors in them. When a ship needed a crew they would get the sailor drunk and he would then find himself serving as a crew member out at sea.

In the early 1880, because of Port Townsend’s waterfront location, the business men of the day decided to bring the railroad to town. It only made sense to off load and load ships here and then ship the goods by rail. That dream lasted until 1892. At that time the railroad said it was too expensive to travel all the way to Port Townsend. Back then, the largest port was Seattle, so the railroad went there instead. Port Townsend then went into a huge depression because of the railroad.

With winter waning and becoming but a fading memory, nature is bursting into bloom. Spring is beckoning hibernating homebodies to come out and play, to breathe the warmer, fragrant air, and relish longer days. So pack your bags and come to Port Townsend for a springtime stay!

Washington Secretary of Health, John Wiesman, will cut the ribbon to open the 23rd season of the Port Townsend Farmers Market on Saturday, April 4 at 9am, followed by the annual Goat Parade, featuring flower-festooned fiddlers, kids (both four-legged and two-legged) with their parents, and of course shoppers, all strolling through the market.

Secretary Wiesman is making the trip to Port Townsend to help celebrate the market opening while promoting his “Healthiest Next Generation” initiative. The goal is to help our children maintain a healthy weight, enjoy active lives and eat well by making changes in early learning settings, schools and communities. Port Townsend already has a head start in meeting a number of the initiative’s goals.

In the last few years, more and more fresh and healthy local produce from Port Townsend Farmers Market growers has made its way to the menus at Jefferson Healthcare and recently into the cafeterias of the Port Townsend schools.

Chef and Director of Food Services, Arran Stark of Jefferson Healthcare, has been a key part of the market’s education program. In addition to building a menu at the hospital that is healthy, tasty, and local, he teaches classes on how to cook local and healthy on a small budget. Chef Arran will give an opening day seasonal vegetable cooking demo in the market’s music tent at 9:30am.

tulips-red-dog-farmVisitors to the Port Townsend Farmers Market will find lots of seasonal produce: from greens of all shapes and sizes to leeks, potatoes, and lots more. The mild winter and warm spring has led to an early bumper crop of tulips, which will be available by the bucket-load on opening day. Eggs will be in abundance, along with local beef, pork, chicken, lamb and salmon, all direct from the producer or fisherman.

The Port Townsend Farmers Market is open Saturdays from 9am to 2pm, located Uptown on Tyler St. between Lawrence and Clay. For more info, go towww.jcfmarkets.org.

Port Townsend Film Festival, September 25-27, 2015

Port Townsend Film Festival, September 25-27, 2015

THE STORY OF OUR FESTIVAL

In 1999, four film buff friends – who met annually at the Telluride Film Festival –decided they could create a festival closer to home, right in the heart of the National Historic District on Port Townsend, Washington’s waterfront.

Rocky Friedman, Linda Yakush, Jim Ewing, and Jim Westall hatched their idea for a hometown film festival with one caveat: It should have something for everyone. Peter Simpson, writer, poet and film lover joined them, and in year five, became our first Executive Director. Together they attracted 200 volunteers to this great notion.

outdoorWith the motto “A film lover’s block party celebrating great films and filmmakers,” the first Port Townsend Film Festival launched on September 22, 2000. We closed off Taylor Street and brought in hay bale seating for an evening of free outdoor movies, opened three indoor movie venues, and screened 24 documentary, feature, and short films over three days and nights.

We now screen more than 80 films in seven venues! It’s completely walkable, includes a big outdoor dinner for passholders, Q&A and panel discussions with filmmakers, and great parties. We still invite everyone to fill Taylor Street, on three evenings, for the outdoor movie (free of charge) and offer free films day and night in the Peter Simpson Theatre.

bruce
Bruce Dern

Our Festival attracts film historians, critics, famous screenwriters, producers, directors and industry specialists. Each year we select a Special Guest, among them Elliott Gould, Tony Curtis, Dyan Cannon, Debra Winger, Karen Allen and Bruce Dern as he prepared for his role in the Academy Award-winning film, “Nebraska.”

Festival revenues allow us to hold special events and take filmmakers to the schools throughout the year, and to offer a fellowship providing local housing (and time) for filmmakers to complete their work.

Our more than 300 volunteers donate their time, money, materials (everything from hammers and nails to floral bouquets), housing and frequent flier miles to keep our guests, filmmakers and their films coming, keeping the dream going.

The Festival has weathered several economic storms during its 15 years, always finding a way for the community and its guests to watch movies together, to talk about movies together, to love movies together. We gave up our original one-room office, in the entryway of the historic Baker Block Building, and moved into a spacious suite on the top floor. You can see our wonderful PTFF neon sign from one end of Water Street to the other.

In this seaport arts community of festivals and celebrations, the people of Port Townsend love their Film Festival. Every year, the word of just how special it is travels just a little further. Every year the waves of creative, diverse moviemakers and moviegoers converge. And so the film lover’s block party goes on!

2015 Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival

We’ve just opened registration for the 2015 Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. Don’t wait to register –early-registrants get first dibs on Fort housing, as well as the best blues mojo going into the new year!

We’re still hard at work putting together the 2015 gathering, but we have confirmations from Paul Asbell, Michael Jerome Browne, Daryl Davis, Pat Donohue, Mary Flower, Samuel James, John Miller, Lauren Sheehan, Cyd Smith, Alice Stuart, Valerie Turner, and Phil Wiggins. Stay tuned for more updates.

As always, our focus for the week is acoustic pre-war (1920s and 1930s) country blues, the African-American cultures it grew out of, and their traditions. Steeped in the rich music and cultures of rural communities of the Southern USA, this workshop gives attention to styles typified by the different players from various regions (Piedmont, the Mississippi Delta, Hill Country, and Texas), the differences in technique as well as how to get the proper sounds of these styles out of your instrument.

The music is the primary focus of the multi-generational in-residence workshop week but the downhome back-porch vibe of the country blues culture creates a community vibe that lends a family gathering feel to the week.
