Here we are approaching the 2022 Victorian Heritage Festival and those words ring true today. Our parent organization has changed the the Port Townsend Heritage Association, but our goals remain the same, to celebrate Port Townsend's storied past. Those years of "Great Expectations".
The Port Townsend Victorian Heritage Festival was founded in 1996 to celebrate the history, lifestyle and audacity of early life in Port Townsend. Now scheduled for late April, the festival offers an opportunity to stroll back in time, learn how the early residents lived, worked and played, hear stories of high stakes business ventures, colorful characters, lost loves and how it all came crashing down.
