Whaling Days – Helping our Community

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”.
