Olympic Peninsula Steam was founded to educate about the history of Port Townsend and the Pacific Northwest. That history is a rich component of life here. If offers a unique opportunity to celebrate, learn and grow. Along the way we've come to realize we're about community and contributing to our home. OPS has helped support and sponsor a host of regional non-profits and organizations. Olympic Peninsula Steam sponsors a series of events through the year.
Olympic Peninsula Steam provides educational programming and community events throughout the year. Our primary events include:
Victorian Festival - Come celebrate Port Townsend's extraordinarily preserved Victorian homes and buildings, enjoy lectures and our exhibition hall, then dance the night away at our Victorian Ball. Last weekend in March. (www.VictorianFestival.org)
The Brass Screw Confederacy: A Steampunk Hootenanny - A 3-day adventure for young and old celebrating the history or future that almost was. June annually. (www.brassscrew.org)
Victorian Yuletide Festival - a Victorian-style parlor to put in a good word with Father Christmas. Savor tasty snacks and help deck the halls performers sing, play and recite all your holiday favorites. December.
