Winter Rendevouz III

The Winter Rendezvous is a popular Kitsap Peninsula festival that celebrates local boats, eats, vintners, cider houses, distilleries, and more. Running from February 12 to February 14 at historic downtown Poulsbo, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the festival is in its third edition.

The fun begins with a welcoming party at the marina, where there will be live music, food and drinks, and prizes given away to kick off all the fun events happening over the weekend. 

The Lovers & Liquors Valentine’s Expo, held on February 13, will feature local chocolatiers, jewelers, and Valentine’s Day-themed gifts. Then, the Glögg Fest will offer free glögg at seven locations throughout downtown, which the public can vote on their favorite. A tour through the delicious world of pickled herring will be held at the Marina Market during the Pickled Herring Expo, along with a taste of the largest selection of licorice in the US. On Saturday, the Historical Society will offer a handful of Downtown Historical Tours in the morning, where visitors learn about the settlers of Poulsbo and the various businesses that have occupied the historical buildings. Artisan shops and exhibitions will be open late until 8:00PM for the 2nd Saturday Art Walk that evening. 

And don’t forget about the Winter Rendezvous opening ceremonies! Held at the Austin-Kvelstag Pavilion at Muriel Iverson Williams Waterfront Park, the Poulsbo All-Stars Drumline will perform and the Poulsbo Vikings will light the traditional bonfire. Drinks and snacks will be available. 

For all your Winter Rendezvous accommodations, book your stay with us here at BEST WESTERN PLUS Silverdale Beach Hotel. We’re conveniently located and have a wide variety of beautiful guestrooms to suit all your needs. We look forward to welcoming you!
