In true Fairhaven Outdoor Cinema tradition, “The Princess Bride” will be featured at the series finale on Aug. 25. More than movies, the Fairhaven Outdoor Cinema includes a variety of live entertainment including musical performers, cirque shows and even an improv comedy show. Movies are shown on the 30-foot screen at the Village Green in the historic Fairhaven community of south Bellingham.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
