Holland Happening 2018 celebrates the many cultures that have come together in Oak Harbor. The festival began as an American version of “King’s Day” in the Netherlands, and marked the region’s Dutch heritage. But with 2018, the festival will include booths, food, and exhibitions that will highlight the multi-cultural nature of Whidbey Island’s largest city.
Pioneer Way is closed Saturday and Sunday to make room for the music, food, and a beer garden in the historic downtown area. Restaurants and other downtown merchants are there to welcome visitors with Oak Harbor-style warmth. Local and regional artisans offer finely crafted wares.
All together, it makes for a spring celebration even if spring-like weather doesn’t always show up.
