There’s always something to do
All year long, you will find exciting events, cultural festivals, family-friendly fun, art tours, celebrations, and more. See what’s happening, then make your plan to stay on Bainbridge Island today.
Sponsored by Bainbridge Community Piano Association, First Sunday Concerts are a rotating group of very talented musicians who perform monthly (check their calendar for times and performers). Concerts are held at the Waterfront Park Community Center conveniently located in Winslow.
Put on your dancing shoes and join in at the Second Saturday Dance hosted by Educated Feet. Bring a partner, or come on your own. Dress casually and expect to meet friendly locals. Your admission includes instruction by Sheila Phillips, certified in Ballroom, Latin, and Swing.
Hit the lawn of City Hall every Saturday, from 10 am – 1 pm for the weekly Farmer’s Market, a showcase for local produce and crafts. More than 40 vendors set up shop for the weekly Farmers’ Market and bring in fresh local produce, meats, flowers and plants, specialty foods, and crafts. Shop while being serenaded by local musicians at this lively island staple.
Since 1948, the Strawberry Festival, organized by the Filipino American Community Of Bainbridge Island, celebrates a proud history of strawberry farming. First started by the
Japanese community, the Filipino community stepped in to keep the berries growing when
Japanese residents on Bainbridge were sent to internment camps during WWII. Enjoy a
delicious lunch of Fililipo cuisine, including a sweet strawberry delight, a royal coronation, and live music.
The Bainbridge Island Rotary Auction and Rummage is a yard sale like no other in the world. Local Rotarians and an army of volunteers take over the entire junior high school campus (fields and parking lots too) and fill it with zillions of donated items. With only 6 hours to find your treasures, you need to move fast. Get to Bainbridge the day before to attend preview night so you can run to the prize at the top of your list at the opening bell. Prices go down as the clock counts down to the close. You’ll find everything under the sun: kitchenware, furniture, books, toys, a gymnasium full of clothing, camping supplies, computers, tools, designer departments for upscale items and auctions for big-ticket items like cars and boats. 100% of proceeds are invested in local non-profits and projects to improve lives and make the world a better place.
Movies in the Park is a slice of old fashioned fun for warm summer nights. Bring the whole family, a picnic, blankets, and chairs for feature-length films on the big screen under the stars at Battle Point Park. Even better — admission is free!
