Special Events put on by the Anacortes Parks and Recreation Department. Most special events are held each year at roughly the same time of year. But, occasionally date changes do occur. We will also do our best to put the major events on the community calendar page. Also, you can view the A-Town Is Our Town publication to see specific information about each special event.  Details will be in the publication season listed below in parenthesis.
