Kitsap Harbor Festival May 26-27

BREMERTON — The annual Kitsap Harbor Festival will celebrate its 10th year on Memorial Day Weekend May 26-27.

This event heralds the opening of the summer boating season as the Bremerton Marina fills up with boaters and historic ships including Tug Comanche and the USS Turner Joy. The festival draws boaters and visitors from outlying communities to partake in the various activities, which will take place along the waterfront marina of Bremerton.

This festival was started by the Port of Bremerton 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. The Port of Bremerton continues to financially support the festival with marketing funding, as does the City of Bremerton through its lodging tax allocations.

Each year the festival grows with additional sponsored events. There is surely something that will interest everyone from Pirate Storytime to touring the Turner Joy. There is entertainment for everyone, vendors to experience and a beer garden from which you can enjoy the beautiful marina view.

The festival will start at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 26, and go through Sunday. For more information and a detailed schedule, visit kitsapharborfestival.org.
