Welcome to Fairhaven!
Official site of Fairhaven Association.
Nestled between the calm waters of Bellingham Bay and the majestic Cascade Mountains in Washington state, Historic Fairhaven Village is known for its Victorian-era architecture and colorful history.
Fairhaven is home to a variety of unique local businesses, art galleries, restaurants and pubs and one of the best independent bookstores in the nation.
Located on the north end of Chuckanut Drive, within the southern city limits of Bellingham, Fairhaven Historic Village is the perfect launching point for a hike, cycle or kayak on the bay.
In this era of Covid 19, Fairhaven’s shops, restaurants, bars and services are open and operating. Things may be a little different – limited capacity, 6-foot social distancing, masks and outdoor seating – but, our welcoming and friendly spirit is alive and well. Fairhaven is open and we look forward to seeing you soon!
