As Washington’s largest island, Whidbey Island creates the northern border of the Puget Sound. Nearly 55,000 residents call Whidbey home. Divided into two areas, the northern end of the island is home to, and economically driven by, Whidbey Naval Air Station. South of the town of Oak Harbor, you will find more service-based businesses and relies heavily on tourism, small-scale agriculture, and the arts. And on Whidbey the arts are celebrated – there are music festivals including the Oak Harbor Music Festival and DjangoFestNW. Among its many other annual celebrations, you’ll discover the Zucchini Festival and the Penn Cove Mussel Festival, as well as activities to keep all ages entertained including Kite Festival, Langley’s Mystery Weekend, Choochokam, Tour de Whidbey, and more.
