Come to the Blackberry Festival to experience some of the greatest food vendors in the Northwest!
There is something for everyone at the Blackberry Festival!
As you stroll the boardwalk you will find many blackberry delights: blackberry “slugs”—a delicious type of maple bar-shaped donut filled with blackberry filling and topped with whipped cream. Perhaps you’d prefer blackberry scones, pie (enjoy a slice or take a whole pie home!) or delicious blackberry shortcake or cobbler. Thirsty? Enjoy a blackberry soda, bubble tea, lemonade or beer. Don’t miss out on the blackberry ice cream, floats and sundaes or other baked goods. There are savory blackberry treats too, such as blackberry sausage. Pick up a bottle of blackberry syrup, jam or balsamic vinegar to enjoy at home—and don’t forget your blackberry wine!
It wouldn’t be the Blackberry Festival without blackberry wine! Bremerton Rotary will be selling blackberry table wine (750 ml bottle - $11) and blackberry dessert wine (375 ml bottle - $13), both bottled by Pasek Cellars of Mt. Vernon, Washington. Limited edition magnum bottles (1.5 liters) are available for $25 but if you want one you’d better hurry—they have sold out within hours the past couple of years!
Wine tastes are available for just 25 cents (for those 21 and over, of course!). Enjoy delicious wine while also giving back to our community: wine sale proceeds benefit the Bremerton Rotary Foundation. The wine booth is located in front of the marina office as you enter the boardwalk from 2nd Street.
In addition to all the berry treats, you can still find your favorite fair and festival food—everything from corn dogs, fresh potato chips and burgers to oyster shooters, barbecue, and egg rolls!
You can also take home blackberry-themed art and gifts such as notecards and blackberry-scented lotions and soap!
