San Juan Island’s community chorus is going straight to the heart of Christmas this year, with beautiful settings of familiar carols and Christmas traditionals. To add to the festivity, an island-grown chamber orchestra will join the Singers onstage for John Rutter's Magnificat. This energetic, joyful piece sets the Magnificat text and a 15th century prayer to Mary in lush harmonies and dancing rhythms.

"Eat Locally" is a way of life for many residents in the San Juan Islands. The San Juan Island Farmers' Market features delicious island-raised produce, berries, colorful bouquets, eggs, and dairy products, as well as fresh local seafood, shellfish, and meats. The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!

The market is held year-round at Brickworks, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street. High season hours (July 4 – Labor Day) are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Low season hours are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The market takes place each Saturday from mid-April through October both inside and outside of Brickworks. In November and December it takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, and from January – April on the 1st Saturday of the month.

Brickworks is Friday Harbor’s newest rehabilitated historic site. The building was built in 1920 to house the Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company. Today it is the last surviving industrial building in Friday Harbor, beautifully renovated to provide a year-round farmers market and event space.

James Levine returns to one of his signature Wagner works conducting this epic comedy – back at the Met for the first time in eight years – about a group of Renaissance "master singers" whose song contest unites a city. Johan Reuter, Johan Botha, and Annette Dasch lead the superb international cast in this charming and magisterial celebration of the power of music and art.

San Juan Community Theatre, 100 2nd Street

On Christmas Eve, Marie’s godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. The nutcracker grows to human size and takes charge of the tin soldiers, flying to the rescue of Marie, who is threatened by the Mouse King and his mouse army.

This choreographic version, created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich, is full of romanticism and philosophical reflections on ideal love. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, it will enchant the whole family for the festive season, proving that one is never too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker. 

Dates & Show Times:  Monday December 22 at 7:30 p.m. and  Sunday December 28 at 2:00 p.m.
