The centrum office is located in Fort Worden in an historic building which I found interesting to visit. The concerts I've attended were the Fiddke Festival, Jazz Festivsal and Blues Festival. All were very well organized and included great music. Tickets run $25-55.

I've been going up to Fort Worden (Pt. Townsend, Washington) for the Centrum Writers Conference for about 20 years. The location could not be improved on: beautiful old white houses like a Hopper painting, Puget Sound just outside your dorm window. Great people, many of...More
