The 121st Sequim Irrigation Festival is starting tomorrow. Until the late 1800’s the Sequim area was a dry prairie. In the mid-1890’s irrigation ditches were dug to bring water from the Dungeness River to the prairie. This began an agricultural revolution to the area. We celebrate this technological feat to this day. you can learn more about the history of the Sequim Irrigation Festival from our website: http://www.irrigationfestival.com/history/

The Irrigation Festival runs over 2 weekends from May 6th to May 15th. This year I am one of the co-directors of the Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair, one of the many events of the festival. The Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair starts May 6th from 5pm-8pm and continues Saturday (10-5) and Sunday (10-4).

In honor of the Sequim Irrigation Festival, I did this colored pencil drawing many years ago.
