The Town of Friday Harbor and its Arts Commission invite the community to celebrate National Poetry Month with a tour of the town’s four poetry gardens.

The winning poems from the town’s 2019 poetry contest are on display in the waterfront viewing area below Downriggers and next to the San Juan Community Theatre, the Mullis Community Senior Center and the post office.

The poems are also published in the book “Friday Harbor Poetry Gardens,” available free at town hall, San Juan Islands Museum of Art, San Juan Islands Sculpture Park and the Chambers of Commerce on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez.

Over 270 poems were submitted in the contest by 90 San Juan County residents. The arts commission plans to hold its second poetry gardens contest in 2022.
