The centrum office is located in Fort Worden in an historic building which I found interesting to visit. The concerts I've attended were the Fiddke Festival, Jazz Festivsal and Blues Festival. All were very well organized and included great music. Tickets run $25-55.

This is inside Fort Warden so you have to have a discover pass or pay $10 to get in. Nothing special, just a building. No history story, has a view of Alexander's castle and the water and that's about it. Not really a tourist attraction.

Love, love, love being able to walk around the Fort Worden campus and hear musicians playing their instruments and singing, all summer long. The concerts and dances are always great. Keep up the good work Centrum!

Summer in Port Townsend is an unending series of festivals and special events. Centrum is a main part of the calendar with their summer music workshops followed by performance weekends. We've been here a few years and loved the jazz performances in the clubs (particularly...More

I've been going up to Fort Worden (Pt. Townsend, Washington) for the Centrum Writers Conference for about 20 years. The location could not be improved on: beautiful old white houses like a Hopper painting, Puget Sound just outside your dorm window. Great people, many of...More
