Birds chirping, whales swimming, and flowers beginning to bloom. Spring is the perfect time to visit Orcas Island. The crowds are minimal, yet there are plenty of fun, unique events happening on the Islands to make your trip exceptional.
March and April Events on the Islands
For the Art Aficionado: March 15-18, 22-25, 2018 With showings for two weekends in March and options for dinner AND a show, Billy Elliot, The Musical is a story about Billy, a British motherless boy, who trades boxing gloves for ballet shoes. This event combines fabulous theatre, arts, and a four course dining experience highlighting local and seasonal products. I'm predicting a standing ovation for this one!
For the Book Lover: April 13 to 15, 2018 The Orcas Island Lit Fest goers will be able to participate in dynamic panel discussions, writing workshops, and our lit crawl, featuring exciting new literary voices, New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer-prize winning authors, beloved regional writers, award-winning poets, and publishers on beautiful Orcas Island at this fun event.
For the Adventurer: April 28th, 2018 With four routes, rest areas with delicious treats, and a 3 course lunch at the end of this non-competitive race, The Tour de Lopez is a fun way to get out and explore the islands by bike! Although not on Orcas, the inter-island provides an easy way to get to this event, and allows you to explore multiple islands during your stay!
