Bremerton Art District
Bremerton may be called a “Navy Town” by some with a connotation it might lack certain, shall we say qualities, but did you know it also has a reputation for having one of the largest arts districts in the Northwest. Downtown at the intersection of 4thand Pacific Avenue is located the City of Bremerton’s diverse fine arts district. Here in the heart of the City you will find museums, performing art stages, several art galleries along with some very unique shops.
Bremerton actually has two days set aside every month for the “Bremerton Art Walk”. Downtown it is called the “First Friday Art Walk” which is held, you guessed it on the first Friday between the hours of 5:00pm and 8:00pm. During this time you can stroll can stroll down the street of the Arts District at your leisure. The next First Friday Art Walk will be April 4th.
The fourth Thursday of every month is the Bremerton Art Walk – Charleston District between the hours of noon and 8:00pm.
