The City of Bellingham cleared the homeless encampment on the morning of Thursday, Jan 28th.
It was located between city hall and Bellingham Public Library. Camp 210 began as an occupied protest in November 2020 against a lack of resources and shelter available for the homeless population of Whatcom County. Besides providing space for an estimated 90 to 120 homeless people, the camp became a grassroots hub arranged by residents, volunteers, and advocates to collect and distribute donations as well as raise awareness of their issue.
Bellingham SeaFeast is an annual two-day festival on the third weekend of September at Squalicum Harbor and Zuanich Point Park. It celebrates the rich maritime culture and heritage, thriving working waterfront (including a water rescue demonstration pictured below), in addition to the enjoyment and conservation of the water resources, seafood industries, and the culinary bounty of the Pacific Northwest. SeaFeast is a non-profit event supported by both public and private entities throughout Whatcom County and the Pacific Northwest.
