Where Water is Wealth

May, 2014 marks the 119th Irrigation Festival

Welcome to the website for the 119th Sequim Irrigation Festival, which will be held May 2nd - 11th, 2014. Our festival celebrates the initiation, development and support of the irrigation ditches which brought water to the once dry prairies of Sequim. This year we had more events and more community involvement than ever, making it a spectacular festival.

The theme for the 2014 festival is "Mountains to Sea...A Pristine Place to Be"

 
119th Sequim Irrigation Festival

The 119th Sequim Irrigation Festival will take place May 2nd - 11th, 2014 in downtown Sequim. The theme for the 2014 festival is "Mountains to Sea...A Pristine Place to Be" and planning is already underway. As the dates for the individual events are confirmed the Events Page will be updated.

The Irrigation Festival has always been about community and 2014 will be no exception.  So, be thinking about creating a float and walking the parade route with it or getting your co-workers or friends together and forming a drill team. If you have been wanting to test the selling of your crafts or art, think about getting a booth at the Street fair.  Do you have that classic car just sitting in the garage? Think about bringing it out for the Car Parade and/or Car Show.

Mountains to Sea...

The theme of "Mountains to Sea...A Pristine Place to Be" for 2014 represents the magnificent outdoor that Sequim has to offer in both recreation and lifestyle.

All the things that make Sequim a "Pristine" place to visit and reside rely on the nourishment of our fresh and clean water supply from the Olympic Mountains.  Hiking the countless trails of the Olympic Peninsula one finds an abundance of rivers and streams delivering both wildlife and plants with the purest of water.

On the Sequim Dungeness you will see numerous fields of lush crops, berry farms and livestock pastures all being delivered their portion of water through the lifeline that is Irrigation.  Whether the outdoor activity is hiking, kayaking, jogging or bicycling you are guaranteed to see the vast Irrigation system at work in Sequim.

Colors of rich red and salmon hues plucked from our breathtaking sunsets set against the deep dark green snowcapped Olympic Mountains transitioning into the brighter solid green that is our fertile Dungeness farmlands.  The crystal blue water of the strait is guarded by the Dungeness spit and its iconic lighthouse.
