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.
