There are several Washington State Wineries close to Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula. When you’ve had your fill of parades and tractor pulls, slip away to taste locally made Washington wines at one of the wineries in nearby Port Angeles: Olympic Cellars, Camaraderie Cellars, Harbinger Winery, and Black Diamond Winery. As you head home on Sunday, allow time to try Washington wine and hard cider at Finnriver Farm & Cidery or Eaglemount Wine & Cider.
The 2011 Sequim Irrigation Festival is a wonderful tradition. Please visit the Sequim Irrigation Festival website for more information.
