Sponsorship Opportunities

We are excited to get back to Blackberry Festival on September 4 - 6, 2021. We are planning on updating the event and getting back to our food festival roots. We understand that the events may be changing in the future, and we need your help more than ever. To keep our guests safe, we will be putting in place additional safety measures. These measures are an additional cost to the Bremerton Rotary Foundation and may interfere with our ability to continue the high level of giving for 2021/2022. Your help can ensure that our guests are safe, and we can continue to provide important help to our community.

Please contact us today to talk about our unique and customizable sponsorship opportunities.
