Mark you calendar to join us in our 5th year at the 2018 Winter Rendezvous! Come by boat, car, bike or ???  A crazy bit of fun during winter to bring a little brightness.  

Friday night features nightlife and live music in multiple venues, and a Whiskey Night in Poulsbo at Tizleys Europub.  Contact these establishments for details or tickets.

Saturday is the main attraction!  The day kicks off at 11:00 am at the Sons of Norway Hall with an opening ceremony featuring our friend Chip Hanauer (hydroplane fame).  Throughout town, the day will feature a Poker Run and Gloggfest Competition (where you can win awesome prizes), Artwalk, and our 2nd Annual Valisblot Bonfire.  This is our winter Nordic event when our favorite Vikings parade through town to end at the waterfront fire pit, and give you a memorable stage to make a promise to your sweetie, and enjoy a cider and  treat while you are at it.  A fun way to warm up for Valentine's Day!  All events listed above for Saturday are FREE to play, and do not require a ticket.

This year, the historic downtown is also featuring a Getaway Giveaway Sweepstakes sponsored by OneEighty Twist.  Visit participating retailers (look for the placards in their windows) and get your game piece to enter.   And increase your chances by visiting as many retailers as you can find.  There are 30 shops participating, and you can enter one (1) game piece per person/per participating retailer/per day.  The prize is a spectacular getaway to Suncadia Lodge in Roslyn, WA ($1000 value).  No purchase necessary.  Must be 21 to play.  This could ramp up to be the best Valentine's ever!
