For over 21 years the Poulsbo Arts Festival (previously Arts by The Bay) has been celebrated at the beautiful waterfront park in downtown Poulsbo on the third weekend in August. The festival brings together an array of handmade arts & crafts, accompanied by food booths and live music and dance. There is something for all the family to enjoy including a children’s arts corner, original design jewelry, metal, ceramic, wood, and fabric art, plus raffles, art demonstrations & much more.
CAFNW invites you to spend the 2nd weekend in November on a unique, self-guided tour of artist's studios throughout beautiful North Kitsap County. Visit with talented professionals working in a variety of media (see Artists). Observe demonstrations in processes such as glass lampwork, raku or etching. The studio sizes range from single-artist working environments to groups of artists in larger venues. The tour is divided into three easy-to-access areas - color-coaded on the brochure map. Come, spend a weekend with us and take home memories and treasures.
