  • FRIDAY HARBOR FILM FESTIVAL - San Juan Island is home to the second annual Film Festival, featuring a number of documentaries and other films about "Stories of the Pacific Rim". Come see over 60 different films on November 7, 8 and 9 at 4 different venues, each within easy walking distance of Argyle House.
  • COME SEE "RED" - Stage Left is thrilled to announce a four week run from October 24 through November 16 of the dynamic, thought-provoking, Tony Award-winning play, "RED," by John Logan. Although set in the studio of abstract painter Mark Rothko, in 1950s New York, this play speaks a universal language about a generation passing the baton, about ethics and art, about the ferocity of artistic passion—all seen through the father/son, mentor/student relationship of Rothko and his apprentice, Ken.
  • Come to the San Juans and visit America's latest National Monument! On March 25, President Obama designated existing federal lands in the San Juans as the San Juans National Monument. This preserves forever many undeveloped portions of the islands, as well as historic lighthouses, cultural resources, and fossil areas. The Antiquities Act giving President Obama the authority to designate national monuments was first exercised by President Theodore Roosevelt to create the Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming, and has since been used by 16 Presidents to protect such areas as the Grand Canyon and the Statue of Liberty. The new San Juans National Monument joins American Camp and English Camp National Historic Park.
  • TripAdvisor named San Juan Island as the #1 island destination in the U.S.! San Juan Island was also named as a top four world pick in their Travelers' Choice Islands awards. Come see why so many travelers to our island find it such a wonderful place.
