Reserve Your Spot
VIP presale registration begins mid July 2018. Sign up for VIP rates and be entered to win dinner for two in Port Townsend and massages for two at Madrona MindBody. Share accomodations with friends or relax in your private cottage near an Army bunker from a bygone era, as deer graze on the field beyond your private covered porch. Take in views of Mount Baker and the Cascades Mountains from your perch atop the bluff overlooking the Salish Sea as eagles fly overhead and waves from passing ships lap softly on beaches below.
We look forward to seeing you, family and friends at our first Fortopia in October!
