Festival History

The annual Kitsap Harbor Festival will celebrate its 7th year on Memorial Weekend May 23rd & 24th, 2015.

The Kitsap Harbor Festival is the opening of the summer boating season and the Marina fills up with boaters, Tall Ships, and the Historic Tug Comanche in Port Orchard or Bremerton. The festival draws boaters and visitors from outlying communities to partake in the various activities.

Many activities will take place along the waterfronts of Bremerton and Port Orchard beginning on Saturday and going through Sunday.

This festival was started after the very successful Bremerton Marina Grand Opening Event in May 2008. The marina now boasts 221 permanent spaces with room for 80-100 visiting boaters.

Each year the festival grows with additional sponsored events. There is surely something that will interest everyone from Pirate Storytime to Kitsap Car Cruz, entertainment or you can rest in one of the Beer Gardens.
