Welcome to Samish Island!

“No Island Like Samish Island”

The Samish Island Community Center’s (SICC) mission is to encourage community development and interaction through educational and social activities among islanders. To that end, it also maintains the community center property as the primary place to gather.

We acknowledge that Samish Island is within the aboriginal territory of the Samish Indian Nation. They were and are respected for their spiritual, cultural, and traditional values and practices, such as weaving, carving, and building of longhouses. The Samish People lived here in stewardship of the lands and waterways of the Salish Sea since time immemorial.   https://www.samishtribe.nsn.us/

4th of July Parade

The Fourth of July Parade on Blue Heron Road is back this year, featuring our very own Samish Island Marching Band. Who will kick off the parade by marching to Fish Point at 1:00 p.m.
All vehicles accessing Blue Heron Road must be down the hill by 12:30. Traffic will be redirected after that time. If you have guests arriving or run a short-term rental, please let your guests know of the road restrictions.
  • If you’re participating in the parade:
    • Gather at Fish Point (east end of Blue Heron Rd) by 12 pm, where Jim Franck has generously offered the use of his property. 
    • Thor and Kathleen Albro, the two parade Marshals, will stage all parade participants, so please make their job easier by giving them ample time for queuing everyone up.
  • If you’re observing the parade and need a place to park: 
    • The Community of Christ church has offered parking in their field on Blue Heron Road. Access the field via the Ratfield’s driveway, so turn into the driveway at 11440 Blue Heron, then turn left into the field—it’s 1/4 mile beyond the Community Center on the right. Arrive no later than 12:15 pm. 
    • NEW FOR 2024: All cars parked in the church field must be moved by 5:00 p.m., or they will be towed at the owner’s expense. Field parking is not available for motorhomes, RVs, boats, recreational trailers, or in-bed truck campers. Be sure to leave the field clean and litter-free.

During your travels, extend respect to everyone who lives on the island (particularly those who live along the parade route) and for the land itself by packing out ALL of your trash.

The 2024 Arts Festival is on Saturday, July 27th

10 am to 4 pm

The Arts Festival needs many helping hands for this event, including before and after.  Volunteering is a fun way to meet your neighbors and connect with the community.
