Ringing in the new year on Whidbey Island

Weather permitting, residents of North Whidbey Island will be celebrating the new year with a fireworks display over Windjammer Park.

Created by the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, this family-friendly event is a wonderful way to end the year. This year, the celebrations kick off at 9pm. Bundle up your family in fleece, pack a flask of hot chocolate for the kids and something stronger for you and head out to enjoy the show.


Deception Pass will play host to a special New Year's Eve celebration this year, offering Western Washington families a way to get outdoors and ring in 2022 in a way they will not soon forget.

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission joined forces with the Deception Pass Park Foundation to organize the festivities, with events planned both New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

The park's West Beach parking lot will host a campout on Dec. 31, with a slate of fun activities and programs planned.

For the brave, the next morning's schedule includes a Puffin Plunge. That event has a suggested $10 donation to support the Fidalgo Nature School.

After the plunge, staffers will lead two 45-minute hikes along the Sand Dune Interpretive Trail, with plenty of snacks and warm drinks on hand.


Dancing Fish Winery will be hosting one last 2021 hurrah from 7:00 - 9:30pm on December 31st, 2021!

Included in this celebratory year-end soirée will be live music by the fun and ever-talented Skinny Tie Jazz*, appetizers & dessert, and of course a champagne toast at midnight! (East coast time... )

So please join us to "almost" ring in the New Year at Dancing Fish Vineyards!

*Skinny Tie Jazz is Fran on upright acoustic bass and Brad on keys. "Identical twins" born many miles and years apart, they are now re-united to play jazz standards from the Great American Songbook with the occasional rock and roll tune thrown in for good measure. Normally you would be invited to "sing along" but given these crazy current times we'll all have to settle for a "hum along". No matter what, an entertaining time will be had by all!

This event is by reservation only and a portion of the $25 admission fee will go to Whidbey Island Nourishes
