Not a year goes by we aren’t proud to be a sponsor of the Penn Cove Water Festival’s Tribal Canoe Races here in Coupeville. Who wouldn’t be proud (and happy) about a Saturday of fun competition, food, music, storytelling, dancing, art, children’s activities and history in Coupeville.

The Penn Cove Water Festival Association is an ALL volunteer historic non- profit organization, keeping historic native canoe racing alive in Coupeville.
