Community Spotlight: Field Arts & Events Hall
First Fed Gives $2M to Field Hall to Support Local Economic Development
Along the waterfront in downtown Port Angeles, a new community space is taking shape. Field Arts & Events Hall will provide a world-class home for arts and events that provides access to cultural and educational experiences, and sparks economic activity throughout the region.

Field Hall is designed to include a 500-seat multi-purpose auditorium and 300-seat state-of-the-art conference facility. From its waterfront perch with views of the mountains and water, Field Hall is well positioned to be the most significant space for arts, entertainment, and special events in the region. By our third year of operations, Field Hall and its patrons are projected to generate over $2.2M in local economic impact.
Field Hall programming will include First Fed Community Conversations, which will host leaders, authors, artists, debates, and other civic activities in the new world-class event space.
First Fed’s donation is the largest corporate commitment to the project, bringing total funding to $46 million to date. First Federal Community Foundation donated $50,000 for Field Hall to apply for LEED certification which signifies the environmental quality and reduced carbon footprint of green buildings.
