Future Festival moving to Kitsap Fairgrounds

Organizers are getting ready for the third annual Great Peninsula Future Festival, which is being moved from Port Gamble to the Kitsap County Fairgrounds between Bremerton and Silverdale to make it more convenient for people to attend.

The festival will be Saturday, July 31, and Sunday, August 1, in the lower field north of the Kitsap Sun Pavilion. This morning, organizer Gene Bullock sent me a copy of the new poster for the event. (Click to enlarge.)

The basic idea remains a combination of entertainment, food and environmental education, all coordinated to create a fun and educational event. This year, the plan is to offer a bluegrass festival on Saturday and more of a mixed variety of music on Sunday.

“We are trying to appeal to a larger audience,” Gene told me. “Saturday, we will have a festival within a festival, and we’ll bring in several bluegrass bands.”

Last year’s price of $7.50 per adult has been reduced to $5, and readily-available coupons will bring the price down to $3 for many people. The admission price and location are designed to increase interest in the event, which started two years ago with about 5,000 people but failed to match that attendance last year.

will be updated as new entertainers and activities are added between now and the end of July.
