A harvest-time potluck dinner at one of the Northwest’s more scenic locations is as good a reason as any to make your way to Whidbey Island this Friday.

The Friends of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve host their free annual community potluck at the historic Crockett Barn, near the Keystone ferry landing at Coupeville. Along with an informational program, there will be musical entertainment by Nathaniel Talbot, local singer and songwriter. If you attend, bring food to share, and your own plates and utensils. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, with non-alcoholic beverages provided.

The barn dates to 1895, built of old-growth timber with a mortise-and-tenon technique to secure the beam work. In this type of construction, wood dowels were used to secure the beams, so no steel bolts or plates were used.

The event is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. Click here for information on where to stay and what to do around Coupeville.
