Outdoor Movie

Charlotte's Web

7PM - 9PM | Worthington Park, Quilcene 
Donations Gratefully Accepted

Presented in partnership with Quilcene Historical Museum!


Charlotte's Web is a 1973 American animated musical drama film based upon the 1952 children's book of the same name by E. B. White.

Like the book, the film is about a pig named Wilbur who befriends an intelligent spider named Charlotte who saves him from being slaughtered.

The film was directed by Charles A. Nichols and Iwao Takamoto from a story by Earl Hamner Jr., and features the voices of Debbie Reynolds, Paul Lynde, and Henry Gibson, alongside narration by Rex Allen.

Charlotte's Web also features a song score of music and lyrics written by the Sherman Brothers, who had previously written music for family films like Mary Poppins (1964), The Jungle Book (1967), and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968).

8PM -10PM - Sweater Weather String Band

Videos & Playlists

With members drawn together from all across the Salish Sea by a mutual love of traditional music and knitwear, Sweater Weather String Band blends old-time, honky-tonk, Celtic, and indie rock influences into a style that has been likened to “the frolicking of sheep before a thunderstorm.” 

Formed from a series of jams and impromptu gigs, the band quickly developed a wildly danceable sound that’s been heard at festivals, folk dances, and bars throughout the Northwest.

Wheat Weaving Workshop

Led by Carmen Spagnola


Saturday & Sunday | 1:30PM - 3PM | Finnriver Cider Garden
$25 Admission | Purchase Tickets Here


Join in a hands-on activity to celebrate the harvest season!

Practice traditional crafting while appreciating locally grown grain from Finnriver Farm, as we learn how to create a ‘12-straw Glory Braid’, an old English wheat weaving design used to ward off evil and invite in friends.

To help set the scene for Harvest Home, Carmen will read excerpts from her forthcoming book, The Spirited Kitchen, and share some of the lore and folk magic of the season.

Carmen Spagnola is an author, podcast host, kitchen witch, and founder of The Numinous Network. She is visiting from the ancestral lands of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations, recently known as Victoria, BC.
