Anacortes History

  1. First Annual Puget Sound Indian Fair (1930)

    October 28, 2021, All Day

    Over three thousand gathered in and around Anacortes to celebrate the first Puget Sound Indian Fair in 1930. The weekend long celebration was filled with dances, activities, the selling of crafts and foods, and banquets. The big event of the weekend was the La Conner war canoe race, in which the canoe, "Telegraph," was "defeated for the first time in a great many years," by rival canoe, "The Cyclone."

  2. The "American Bulletin" Debuts (1950)

    October 30, 2021, All Day @ Anacortes American

    Journalists Wallie Funk and John Webber owned the Anacortes American from 1950 to 1964. They published their first issue together on June 1, 1950. Early in their publishing career, the two fraternity brothers had a radical idea: expanding the American to add a four-day-a-week tabloid, "The American Bulletin." Journalistic peers called the move "insane" and spoke of Anacortes as "the boneyard of Washington state journalism." Despite all this, the Bulletin stayed in publication until 1962, when the Scripps League syndicate bought the Anacortes American operation.
