Whaling Days is a non-profit festival run exclusively by Volunteers. Whaling Days is open to the public and everyone is welcome regardless of race, creed, color, nationality, religion or sexual orientation. Whaling Days has hosted a family oriented festival in “Old Town” Silverdale since 1972. Run exclusively by volunteers, this not-for-profit organization believes strongly in helping and supporting our Kitsap County community and has begun setting aside monies as available in the annual budget to “give back”. It is the largest music festival in Kitsap County, and draws thousands of people come out every year.
