Kitsap Wine Festival raises over $67,000 for Kitsap Humane Society

Over 550 wine enthusiasts came out Saturday afternoon to Harborside Fountain Park in Bremerton

Over 550 wine enthusiasts came out to Harborside Fountain Park in Bremerton Saturday for the 11th annual Kitsap Wine Festival.

Despite the rain-filled morning, the weather subsided in time for the 2 p.m. start of the event. Thirty wineries participated this year, with each offering a variety of regional wines. Five food vendors were also on hand to complement all the wine tasting.

A portion of the ticket and wine store sales, along with proceeds from the raffle and Golden Ticket packages, will go directly to supporting shelter pets at Kitsap Humane Society. Between those proceeds and community sponsors, the event raised more than $67,000 for Kitsap Humane Society.

“We are very grateful to Kitsap Conference Center, Columbia Hospitality and the City of Bremerton for selecting Kitsap Humane Society as this year’s nonprofit beneficiary,” said Rachel Wilson, the Kitsap Humane Society events and outreach coordinator.

“We really enjoyed partnering for this event. It’s not always that you can enjoy delicious wine and know that you’re supporting a shelter pet while doing so.”
