Historical Context

Once upon a time the people of Port Townsend would get together and enjoy massive community feasts. Cheif Chetzemoka, Joe Kuhn and James G. Swan amongst others were known for producing community clam bakes that would serve 1200+ people. 

A tribute to this past, "CAKE PICNIC" provides our community an excuse to get together & celebrate with family and friends... with free food.
