One of Kitsap County’s most celebrated summer events is nearly here! From July 25-27, visitors from near and far descend on downtown Silverdale to take part in Whaling Days and celebrate all that makes living in this wonderful part of the world so special!  


There are a ton of things going on at this year’s iteration of Whaling Days. Here are some of the highlights:

Doctors’ Cinic Whale of A Run: this charity race benefits the Hospice of Kitsap County. There are categories for people of every age and fitness level.

Tour De Kitsap: It might not quite be the 2000-mile Tour De France, but the Tour De Kitsap will feature a number of scenic routes of varying mileage around beautiful Kitsap County on July 27.

Silverdale Duck Rotary Race:
Place a bet on a rubber ducky to win the race and help raise funds to benefit Kitsap Cancer Services! Great prizes are up for grabs as well.

Dye’s Inlet Dash
: Grab some coworkers, family or friends and join in on the Silver Outrigger Canoe Association’s Dye’s Inlet Dash. They provide the canoe and an experienced steerer and you provide the manpower! Trophies in Men’s, Women’s, Coed and Ohana (family) categories will be on the line!

Silverdale Lion’s Grand Parade
: A major highlight of Whaling Days, the Silverdale Lion’s Grand Parade is a fantastic display of community spirit and features many well-loved businesses and organizations around Kitsap. Keep an eye out for Willy, the 40-foot blue whale!

In addition to these events, there are carnival rides, an open market-style street fair, musical performances and more! For a full list of events and event registration information, check out the Whaling Days website. 

We really want you to be here to enjoy Whaling Days in Silverdale, but rooms are going fast! Book a room now at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Silverdale Beach Hotel to ensure that you’ll be here when the fun starts.
