1:30 p.m.staging with 2:30 p.m. start
Start at SJC Fairgrounds on Argyle Avenue, end at Brickworks, 150 Nichols Street

The Friday Harbor Fall Farm Parade is the genuine deal. Everybody gets in the act: from island children with their favorite backyard chickens, to long-time island farm families with island-scale tractors and harvesters parading through Friday Harbor’s main streets to celebrate the resurgence of small farms and local food in the San Juans.

The parade begins at 2:30 p.m. and travels down Argyle Avenue and Spring Street before heading to the Brickworks, a site historically known for the Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company, an important local landmark recently saved from the wrecking ball.

Upon arrival at the market, parade contestants and observers will enjoy music as well as sample and judge the best of the island’s favorite chili recipes in the annual Chili Cook-off.  Many will be featuring island-grown beef, lamb and pork.

San Juan Community Theatre, 100 2nd Street

From Broadway to Friday Harbor! One of the newest plays to hit the SJCT stage, this Christopher Durang comedy won the Tony Award for best play in 2013. 

The play centers around middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia who live in the family home in Pennsylvania. Named for characters in plays by Anton Chekhov, Vanya and Sonia have not had to grow up. Neither has a job, and money is provided by their sister Masha, a movie star who owns the house and pays the bills. Vanya (a frustrated writer) and Sonia (who is forever reminding everyone that she is adopted) spend their days bemoaning their rather Chekovian lot in life. Their world is turned upside down when Masha returns home bringing her young, ambitious lover, Spike.
