The Blackberry Festival is the longest-running festival in the city of Bremerton. The Bremerton Rotary Club took ownership of this beloved community event just over a decade ago, and it is now one of the club’s two biggest annual fundraisers.
The festival celebrates “all things blackberry” and includes more than 150 food, craft, and retail vendors, two stages with live entertainment, a beer garden, and more!
The festival brings more than 25,000 visitors from throughout the Northwest to the Bremerton waterfront over Labor Day weekend. The 2022 festival – sponsored by Kitsap Credit Union- was the largest in the festival’s history – it had an estimated $500,000 impact on the local economy and raised $50,000 net for the Bremerton Rotary Foundation!
