San Juan Shindigs is your resource for designing a magical and memorable event in the San Juan Islands. We want to make the event planning process as easy as possible for you. If the Shindigs’ inventory doesn’t have something you want, let us know and we’ll do our best to source it for you.
San Juan Shindigs is the brainchild of Katie and Michelle Stringer. Like many people in the PNW, they are transplants. Katie was raised in Montana and moved to Seattle after college. She has been working in corporate America ever since. Michelle was raised as a Navy brat but claims she’s from Philadelphia. She also moved to Seattle after college and works as a physical therapist. Katie and Michelle met in 2011 and never looked back. They moved to San Juan Island in April 2014 with plans to get married and start a family in a small town. Mission accomplished! Katie and Michelle were married on Orcas Island in September 2014 and welcomed their first child, Sadie, into the world in December 2015. They also have four fur babies who help add to the chaotic harmony of each and every day. The whole Stringer clan is in love with the natural beauty of the islands, the strong sense of community, and the prospect for what the future holds for their family in this little piece of paradise.
