Don’t Miss the Winter Rendezvous Festival in Poulsbo, WA | Feb. 7 – 9

Chip Hanauer, known locally as “the Boat Guy” and internationally as a hall-of-fame hydroplane racer, can’t stand the sight of an empty dock. Unfortunately, Poulsbo doesn’t draw many nautical visitors during the winter months, which means the guest dock is usually barren. Not willing to tolerate this any longer, Chip has helped organize a winter weekend boating event and festival in Poulsbo from February 7th to 9th.
It’s called the Winter Rendezvous festival, and it has been met with such a warm reception that tickets to its official events have already sold out! If you’re a boater, hopefully you’ve already got your tickets (if not, you can always put your name on the standby list). If you’re not a boater, though, then you really don’t need tickets (after all, they only get you into the official parties and galas—the real fun happens with all the other events that are taking place in Poulsbo over the weekend).
For this very special event, the whole city will be getting into the festival spirit. There will be beer, wine, whisky and smoked salmon tastings. There will be live music, Viking shows and a marine swap meet. There will be bonfires, dancing, pancake breakfasts, brewery tours, and art exhibitions. In summary, there will be a lot of fun things happening!

Poulsbo is known as “Little Norway” for its strong Scandinavian cultural influence, and this culture will be on full display during the Winter Rendezvous. It’s the perfect opportunity to explore one of Puget Sound’s most charming little cities. Check out this Poulsbo Walking Map to chart your course through everything the city has to offer.
