Fourth of July | Arts Festival |Christmas Program | Halloween Party | Island-wide Garage Sale | Community Potlucks


We try do too as little as possible on the island, but there are some events worthy of consideration:

Fourth of July Celebration - A summer community celebration (think makeshift floats, humorous & clever family/groups, old cars, firetrucks, flags, kids on trikes, bikes, strollers & electric vehicles). Always at 1 p.m., always on July 4, always fun.

Fine Arts Festival - Read about the summer arts festival on the arts festival Page.


Island Christmas - A holiday celebration of the season, with island entertainers and children, usually held in mid-December. Contact: Kitty Bluhm

Halloween Party - SICC asks any young and old adults to help plan and put on the island Halloween Party for children at the Community Center on October 31. Think of "scary activities for kids" and help plan this fun time for all.

Island-Wide Garage Sale - SICC organizes the island-wide garage sale day in June, with balloons, signs, maps and other useful items for islanders who'd like to sell things on the same day. Check the Samish Shore Lines for the date. A fun day for all.

Island Potluck Dinners - Community potlucks are held three times yearly at the Community Center, usually September, January and May. We each bring a dish to share, chat with neighbors and have a speaker or program of interest to all. Check the Samish Shore Lines for dates.
