Hurricane forces are coming to the North Olympic Land Trust’s StreamFest stage.

The annual fundraiser for the North Olympic Land Trust will run from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30, in Port Angeles.

The Hurricane Brass Septet will provide ragtime, a Sousa march and other American favorites from 3-3:45 p.m.

Ninety-two-year-old fiddler Ralph Byers, Sequim, will be featured at 12:30 p.m., along with Bob McCollum of Port Townsend. For the 1:45 p.m. performance, Frank Figg and John and Donna Spence will host a singalong of favorite tunes.

At 4 p.m., George Yount will play polkas, jigs, and reels on the harmonica.

Admission to the 10th annual StreamFest is free. Free shuttles will run throughout the festival from the Eagles parking lot, U.S. Highway 101 and Penn Street, Port Angeles.

StreamFest entry is across from Peninsula Golf Club’s clubhouse, 824 Lindberg Road, Port Angeles.

Other activities include nature walks, educational booths, and environmental awareness activities.

The StreamFest Smorgasbord and silent auction support the land trust, which helps property owners protect their property through conservation easements.

The smorgasbord includes cobbler, wine, beer, soft drinks and a silent auction. Tickets, $15, are available from Port Book and News and Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles; Pacific Mist Books; Sequim, and Sunny Farms Country Farm and Garden Store, Carlsborg.

Tickets also can be bought by visiting www.nolt.org or calling the land trust, 417-1815.

The first 100 StreamFest Smorgasbord participants to turn in tickets purchased in advance will receive reusable shopping bags donated by Sunny Farms.

StreamFest organizers still are accepting donations of berries for the cobbler, silent auction items, and reusable spoons, forks and bowls. Help also is needed during set-up on Saturday, Aug. 29, and clean-up on Sunday, Aug. 30, after 7 p.m.
