June in Port Gamble, Summer's Coming!
Traditionally, summertime in Port Gamble means big festivals like June Faire and Old Mill Days. Although Port Gamble will not be hosting those festivals, the quaint historic town is hoping for a busy summer as Washington State moves through the phases of reopening. Port Gamble boasts great eats, unique shopping experiences, and lot of outdoor activities to fill your summer appetite. We are hoping to see some businesses be able to open with limited capacities as laid out in Washington State’s reopening plan for COVID19. This still creates great opportunity for supporting the Port Gamble businesses by purchasing items from online stores. Many of the businesses have been offering some great deals in their online stores.
