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.
Visit the Penn Cove Water Festival site
for line up of tribal teams, races, children’s activities, dancing, music, story telling and much more about this family friendly and historic event.
