Penn Cove Water FestivalMay 14 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
The Penn Cove Water Festival is back for 2022.
The Annual Penn Cove Water Festival, every May, commemorates and celebrates connections with our Native American heritage. This is a free family festival on the waterfront in Historic Coupeville, Whidbey Island, WA. It is a fun-packed event filled with favorite Native American canoe races, performers, arts and crafts vendors with youth activities and educational exhibits.
This event also provides a unique opportunity for local residents to become involved by "extending a hand of friendship" to the Native guests. In following the custom of Native Americans and First Nations of Canada, who show their hospitality to their visitors by presenting gifts, the community welcomes the participants through giving gifts of homemade bread.
