Victorian Festival 2014 March 21-23
The 2014 Victorian Heritage Festival takes place March 21st through 23th, 2014. When thinking of Port Townsend’s early days images of shipping and lumber, rough streets and genteel houses spring to mind, but the U.S. Army established Fort Townsend in 1856. The 18th Victorian Festival looks at how the military shaped culture during those volatile decades of expansion, civil war, and economic tumult.
Kick off Friday night with our Victorian Pub Crawl - featuring saloons, "shanghai tunnels," and fine vintage cocktails through a staggering selection of Port Townsends (in)famous watering holes.
Saturday looks back to Port Townsend's military roots at Fort Townsend and Fort Worden. Watch cavalry drills and demonstrations along side old favorites like the fashion show, steam boat rides, prize fighters and Victorian teas. Sunday we look forward to offering a series of building tours.
The Victorian Heritage Festival is organizedby Olympic Peninsula Steam with support from Victorian Society: Northwest and celebrates Port Townsend's unique role as an exquisitely preserved historical seaport surviving and thriving as a modern city.
Join us March 21-23, 2014 for a celebration of the old that is new again - bringing together scholars, enthusiasts and curiosity-seekers from across the Pacific Northwest.

Gail & Jim---What a lovely three days we had here with a setting to die for, wonderful
breakfasts, and gracious hosts. Thanks for a first time visit that I hope won't be the last!.
We loved our little dinner on your lawn and of course, sitting at near midnight in the chairs
on a warm clear August night, viewing a golden moon shining on the water, and looking at
tars with the sound of waves lapping the shore. It doesn't get better than that!

Paradise on the beach
This is a fantastic location for anyone who enjoys strolling on the miles of beach
that adjoin this property just minutes away from downtown Port Townsend. The
host and hostess are enthusiastic about making one's stay comfortable whether it be
relaxing on the waterfront lawn chairs or settling in to their B and B. There are lots of
interesting things to do nearby, visiting the Maritime Centre, learning the historical
aspects of the former Quarantine Station, or just watching the action in the boatyard.
One starts the day with a great breakfast in the Commander's House and ends it with a
super meal at the nearby restaurant on the waterfront, just a three minute walk. Highly
recommend this B and B!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank-you so much for the marvelous escape from the real world.....it is a symphony
for the soul, and we shall return.The food, room, atmosphere are wonderful and that
big gorgeous dog stole my heart....too!

SNOW in Port Townsend!! But some sun, some rain, wind, calm...a bit of everything for a perfectly wonderful
visit in the Island View Room. We had everything we could have wanted and then some! We loved our stay here. Thanks for great hospitality and good suggestions for places to eat and things to see. We hope to return again.
