The Elwha River Casino will host its first Elwha River Artisan Alley, an art and craft fair, from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. July 29-31.
The craft fair will feature Coast Salish artwork from local artists and a variety of vendors selling locally roasted coffee and souvenirs commemorating the 2009 Tribal Journeys.
The craft show runs in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the historical "Paddle to Seattle" in 1989, the first traditional intertribal canoe voyage in more than 100 years.
For Tribal Journeys 2009, canoes will land at Hollywood Beach in Port Angeles on Wednesday, July 29. The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe will host canoe families from July 29-31.
More than 100 canoes from as many as 90 U.S. tribes and Canadian First Nations and an estimated 12,000 people participate in tribal canoe journeys annually.
The art show is open to the public and will be held at Elwha River Casino, 631 Stratton Road, Port Angeles.
Anyone interested in participating in the craft show can contact Eades at 452-3005.
