3rd Annual Sequim Sunshine Festival
The Sequim Sunshine Festival encourages people to get out, have some fun, explore our beautiful town and discover something new. Details for this two day event at https://www.visitsunnysequim.com/263/Sequim-Sunshine-Festival
These are the Friday, March 4 Sunshine Festival Events:
5:00 p.m. – Ribbon Cutting on the Civic Center Plaza at 152 W Cedar St.

Join us for this custom built interactive environment that blends art and science encouraging visitors to look at light as an artistic design element and the physical properties of light. Art and science share a similar path of exploration, but with different intentions. Artist Ross Brown hopes this installation will instruct and also create wonder at the power of light to inform our lives. “Living here in the ’Blue Hole/Rain Shadow’ have you ever wondered what is ’light’? Most of us accept that it is and get on with our lives. This exhibit is intended to invite the viewer to experience light as a form of artistic expression as well as talk about ’what is light’. As the viewer, you will be able to interact with and manipulate the light to see and feel the extraordinary power of these electromagnetic waves we call light.” – Ross A. Brown, exhibit designer
6:00 – 8:00 p.m. – City Arts Advisory Commission Music Jam on Civic Center Plaza
6:00 p.m. to March 5 – Play the Great Sun Hunt 2022 Scavenger Hunt.

Showcasing the Sequim Sunshine Festival Poster Artist: Donika Huls is a graphic designer with an ethereal aesthetic that embodies her work and her art will be featured on the 2022 Sequim Sunshine Festival poster and other marketing materials. She creates her pieces hoping that they leave the viewer with a warm feeling of joy and hope. This is Donika’s first big project after graduating with a degree in Multimedia Communications from Peninsula College, and she is very excited to be creating art for the Sequim Sunshine Festival. In her free time, Donika enjoys playing video games and hanging out with her friends. Donika shares, “I wanted my art to convey what it means to live in Sequim, while also symbolizing the light and hope that the Sunshine Festival embodies. Having an elk be one of the main parts of the image with the sun between the antlers is what really makes this art specific to Sequim’s sunshine, along with the mountain range and rolling hills in the background. The spelling of Sequim in the stars is actually a call out to the drone show from the 2020 festival, when drones spelled out the name of the town. Overall, I really wanted the art to have the joyous feeling of a sun rising on a new day, and the hope that that brings.”
Due to an abundance of Covid-19 caution and community care, the Eighth Annual “Whodunnit Downtown? – The Case of the Sterling Reputation” Mystery Game is postponed to January 2023.
Thank you for your support and understanding. Kitty Sterling Sterling thanks you too!
