Sequim (pronounced skwɪm) is a city in Clallam County, on the Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington. The population was 4,334 at the 2000 census. It is located along the Dungeness River near the base of the Olympic Mountains. Sequim is known for its "rainshadow," which provides for more sunshine and less precipitation than the rest of the Olympic Peninsula, much of which is a temperate rain forest. All of that sunshine makes Sequim perfect for growing lavender, and for outdoor events, such as the Lavender Festival and Irrigation Festival, the oldest annual community event in Washington State.
