3 Ways to Enjoy September Saturdays in Kitsap County

posted by: BEST WESTERN PLUS Silverdale on: September 10, 2013 2:51:35 PM

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are starting to change color and nighttime strolls increasingly require a sweater. There’s no doubt about it folks: summer is almost over. But don’t dismay just yet, because September in Kitsap County offers numerous ways to enjoy what’s left of the sunny season. Here are a few suggestions:    

Tomato Taste-Off at the Poulsbo Farmers Market – Sat. Sept. 14

It’s a vegetable. It’s a fruit. It’s one of the most versatile ingredients you’ll find. But while most of our everyday encounters with tomatoes involve ketchup or pizza sauce, there is much to be appreciated when enjoying a fresh tomato. There’s a real art to growing them too. At the Poulsbo Farmers Market Tomato Taste-Off, you can sample a variety of beautiful, locally-grown tomatoes with all different flavors, colors and textures—enough to satisfy even the most discerning tomato aficionado. 

Keyport Fest – Sat. Sept. 21

September rarely fails to offer up some great late-summer weather on the Kitsap Peninsula and we hope that’s the case for this year’s annual festival in the town of Keyport. The festival events include a classic car show & shine, free activities for kids, live music and dance, a family dining area and dozens of booths and vendors. The events take place from 9am until 4:30pm near the corner of Washington Ave and SR 308. 

Brownsville Appreciation Day – Sat. Sept. 28

How does a pirate zombie treasure hunt sound? Terrifying? Well, rest assured, the pirate zombie treasure hunt at the annual Brownville Appreciation Day festival has no real pirates or zombies, just costume-clad, Nerf gun-wielding competitors hunting for hidden bounty through a forested maze. That’s just one of the attractions at B.A.D. Others include live music, a custom car show, art show, crafts fair and yacht association rendezvous. Events take place from 9am to 5pm at the Port of Brownsville marina.

We encourage our guests here at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Silverdale Beach Hotel to check out these fun events—they’re all within a 15-minute drive of our hotel!
