Thirty-six years ago, our commercial fishermen sold their used gear as yard art on Commercial Avenue. “Shipwreck” has evolved into a massive community garage sale including flea market and antique vendors.

The event technically starts at 8 am, but there are usually some businesses and booths that get started right at first light, just like the old time fishermen used to. This event features over 200 vendors set up in booths along Commercial street, each booth brings something new and usually very eclectic, and you are sure to find something that you can’t live without. There are also some food stands set up that serve a variety of different and delicious treats.

This event it family friendly and is organized by the Fidalgo Island Rotary Club.”
