It is one of the largest events in Kitsap County. It has over 150 vendors, various entertainment, beer garden, and specialty wine sales.

Charitable Giving
The Bremerton Blackberry Festival is presented by the Bremerton Rotary Foundation, one of the largest giving foundations in the area, supporting scholarships and other community projects. 100% of all proceeds from the Bremerton Blackberry Festival are distributed to the community in various ways, over $20,000 in 2019 with a goal of $30,000 in 2020.

Marketing
Advertising: In partnership with the Kitsap Sun, Blackberry Festival invents approximately $7,000 in conjunction with an additional $5,000 of in-kind advertising from a variety of sources. Over 150 posters are distributed and 500 event programs are handed out. The total advertising budget is $12,000.
Social Media: The Blackberry Festival has over 3,600 likes on the Facebook page and over 3,700 people following the page. In over 121 reviews, the festival is rated at 4.3 out of 5. Over 5,500 people have “checked in” at the event in 2019. In the past, all social media had an organic reach of over 25,000 people interested and 539 shares in 2019.

New for 2020
Blackberry Festival is reclaiming its food festival roots in 2020. All food vendors will be offering a “Blackberry themed” food item for $5 or less.
