Festivals & Festivities

Pretty much year round there is bound to be some sort of annual celebration or festival from the Olympic Peninsula area to the Kitsap Peninsula area.  And this list doesn’t even include the heavy hitters in Pierce, King and surrounding counties like the Washington State Fair or Bumbershoot!  So here is a month by month list of the different festivities happening in our “neck of the woods” January through December.  Be sure to check websites for dates, admission fees, etc.  If you see one we’ve missed, be sure to let us know and we’ll add it on the list!













6th Annual Polar Bear Plunge

On February 7, 2015 the Hood Canal Lions Club Presents: Mason County Emergency Services 6th Annual Polar Bear Plunge.  Every February for the last five years, members of our local emergency services have braved the plunge into the frigid winter waters of Hood Canal.  Why subject themselves to such a task?  Participants in the Polar Bear Plunge seek sponsorship to raise money to support emergency service organizations.  Each year a different organization is chosen to receive the event proceeds.  This community event is supported and sponsored by many local businesses and residents recognizing the importance of giving back to our emergency service providers.  Any member of the community that is interested in raising funds may enter to participate with a $25 sponsorship minimum.  Whether you’re a participant or a bystander, this event promises to be fun and entertaining for everyone.  There will be music, food, face painting and a raffle.  Find someone to sponsor or even participate yourself!  Support your local emergency service providers; they are dedicated work hard for the community.

For a list of past recipients, entry rules & registration or for more general information, please visit the website or contact Don Minor, Event Chair: (360) 898-4444.
