Events held every month, rain or shine!

GreenDrinks is a networking event for people passionate about the sustainability of our environment and our local economy. Held almost every second Thursday of the month in collaboration with the Greater Kitsap Chamber of Commerce, Bremerton GreenDrinks is a monthly, informal networking event for professionals, community leaders, activists, artists, and anyone interested in making Bremerton a great place to live. (Please note that regardless of the venue, this is intended for adults only).

First Friday Art Walk is a free community event that showcases the thriving art scene in Bremerton. It is held in Downtown Bremerton, Charleston, Lebo, and Manette every first Friday from 5pm–8pm. Rain or shine. Participating businesses host artists, musicians, and more! Check out the participating businesses and other information at the website

Don't forget too look for your Jeen⁠s! Heavy Jeens that is!

Heavy Jeens is a public poster project in Bremerton, WA. An edition of handmade posters distributed and hidden in businesses and on the street. It's up to you to hunt them out. They're free. Once you find them, you take them home.


Saint Patrick's Day Parade

Like so many public gatherings, this event took a break during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it came back in full force in 2023. This parade is a lovely contrast to the Armed Forces Parade with great music, silly costumes, and lots of gold coins. Gold coins dropped off at participating local businesses boosted local sales between 30-50 percent during and after the parade.

Femmes & Thems

This newly established annual event was a huge success in 2023 and we hope to make it even grander in 2024. Participating businesses stay open later on this summer evening and many offered specials and hosted events at their locations.

Rock the Dock 

Rock the Dock is our Summer Concert Series held on the Louis Mentor Boardwalk at Bremerton Marina every Saturday night in August. Our past line-ups of exceptional talent provides something for all music tastes, from folk to country, pop, alternative music, and good old rock ‘n roll. The free concert series is made possible by a partnership of the Port of Bremerton, City of Bremerton, and the Downtown Bremerton Association who all work collaboratively to invest in and grow the series.

Trick-or-Treat street & costume exchange 

In 2023, at least 1,200 trick-or-treaters with their families flooded downtown Bremerton. A DJ at the corner of 4th and Pacific adds to the night’s energy, plus interactive experiences of local businesses, including haunted houses, touch-a-trucks, and lots and lots of candy!

At the DBA, we want everyone to be able to participate in the Halloween fun, so we host an annual costume shop a couple weekends before the big night. Community donations make sure everyone that wants a costume has one!

Winterfest Tree Lighting & Santa Photos

There are so many holiday traditions in Bremerton, but Winterfest is the official tree lighting with the Mayor in front of the Puget Sound Naval Museum. We offer free photos with Santa at a sponsoring location near the festivities and arrange a free holiday movie to continue the holiday fun downtown.

2024 Sponsors

Today, the DBA is focused on Downtown economic and quality-of-life issues. Preserving the history of Downtown Bremerton, as well as educating the public of the uniqueness of our City's core, is part of our mission.
