Enjoy Fort Worden’s spectacular fall beauty this October and experience our first ever Fortopia—an all-inclusive* week of classes, workshops, talks and field trips. It includes a carefully curated selection of local history, creative writing, fine arts, singing, dancing, Pacific Northwest culture, cuisine and more. Designed for adults of all skill levels, daily activities range from yoga to woodworking to journaling, showcasing the best of Fort Worden’s various celebrated Partner organizations and the surrounding area.

Fortopia 2018 includes specialty dining experiences featuring the region’s best locally sourced harvests and commodities from small businesses like Mt. Townsend Creamery, Port Townsend Vineyards, Finnriver Cider, Hama Hama Oysters and more. Don’t miss out on the initial Fortopia 2018’s renowned lineup of illuminating authors, artists and experts as you fall in love with the Fort and Port Townsend this October.

VIP presale registration began July 8, 2018–sign up for VIP rates and be entered to win dinner for two in Port Townsend and massages for two at Madrona Mind Body. Share accommodations with friends or relax in your private cottage near an Army bunker from a bygone era, as deer graze on the field beyond your private covered porch. Take in views of Mount Baker and the Cascades Mountains from your perch atop the bluff overlooking the Salish Sea as eagles fly overhead and waves from passing ships lap softly on beaches below.

Fort Worden, located in Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula, is in the northwest corner of Washington State, less than a two-hour drive from Seattle. Port Townsend is one of three Victorian seaports in the United States. The city boasts two National Historic Landmark Districts. One district celebrates the authentic Victorian buildings downtown and the stately, elegant homes uptown, while the second district encompasses historic Fort Worden State Park.

We look forward to seeing you, family and friends at our introductory Fortopia 2018, this October 7–12, 2018.
