Shipwreck has been CANCELLED for July 2021. We have sadly decided that we cannot fit into the state and county rules for a street festival this summer. Please stay well and we’ll plan on seeing all of you in JULY 16, 2022!!!! 


Fidalgo Island Rotary must cancel our planned Shipwreck Fest for 2020 as recommended by our county and city officials to keep us all safe. We are as disappointed as all our vendors must be as this is a fantastic event we all enjoy. We plan to return in 2021 as usual so please put us on your calendar for SATURDAY JULY 17, 2021.

Rotary wants you to know that we have your health and well being as our utmost consideration.

Important Notice: Fidalgo Island Rotary/ Rotary International is a nonpartisan organization. Shipwreck Fest is a massive garage sale where the primary purpose is for vendors to sell their items in a family friendly, nonpartisan venue. In light of these guiding principles, no application from any political group will be accepted. Furthermore, applicants and vendors agree that they will not display, sell, give away, or otherwise dispense political materials.

  • pdfApplication for Vendors

Vendor spaces will be laid out on Commercial Avenue from 10th to 3rd streets and include a few side streets. All efforts will be made to accommodate vendors requesting the same space as previous years. Stores and vendors who wish to repeat their space from the previous year must submit applications by May 1. DEADLINE for all other applications is July 6th.

You will receive a letter with your space assignment much closer to the event. Please return the enclosed form along with your vendor fee made payable to Fidalgo Island Rotary. Questions concerning this years’ event should be addressed to Rotarian Valerie Tibbetts at 360 299-9390. Funds raised from the 38th Annual Shipwreck Day support local and international Rotary Projects.

To continue our effort to make this a “Greener” event we will not have dumpsters available for trash or unsold merchandise. All vendors are responsible for disposing of their own packing materials. We will have garbage cans and recycle bins setup for normal refuse. Please breakdown all cardboard boxes. Vendors not complying may be asked not to return next year.

Rising costs have prompted us to increase our fees this year for the first time in years.

We look forward to working with you and appreciate your support and participation in this fun event!
