Event Details


Once again, the Northwest’s finest wineries and restaurants will gather this year on Saturday, July 23 for the 2016 Gig Harbor Wine & Food Festival. Over 50 vendors will be exhibiting wine, food, brews and spirits in tents overlooking beautiful Gig Harbor Bay.  In addition, you will have the opportunity to join us for the 2nd annual Sumnmer Sip and Stroll event to be held on Thursday evening, July 21, 2016.

Aside from providing savory delights for anyone’s palate, the event will feature a variety of wine seminars and food demonstrations by celebrity chefs for those who are eager to learn. Sip wine and develop your culinary skills, all while experiencing the lovely maritime location.  The class schedule is not yet available but check back periodically for updates and as we add ticket availability, we will notify you if you have already purchased your tickets for the Sip and Stroll or the Grand Tasting.

The festival will take place on the beautiful grounds of the Harbor History Museum and throughout the downtown waterfront district. This event was an early sell-out in 2014 and 2015, so ensure your spot by purchasing your ticket today.

The Gig Harbor Wine & Food Festival is co-sponsored by the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance and the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor. All proceeds will sponsor local community projects.

The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance / The Rotary Club of Gig Harbor

The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization) is a Washington State and Nationally accredited Main Street organization. Through Main Street’s 4 Point Approach (Design, Economic Development, Organization and Promotion), the Alliance pursues a comprehensive commercial district revitalization strategy, brings all district stakeholders together, and encourages a vibrant economy while maintaining the historic character of the community.

Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance events and projects include: Girls Night Out, Thursday Night Out, Gig Harbor Wine & Food Festival, Waterfront Farmers Market, Summer Flower Baskets, Trick or Treat in the Harbor, Candlelight Christmas in the Harbor, traffic counts, area trade analysis, merchant support, and more.

The Rotary Club of Gig Harbor (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization) Welcome to the Rotary Çlub of Gig Harbor. We are neighbors, friends, co-workers, community leaders, and global citizens uniting for the common good. At The heart of our club are dedicated people who share a passion for community service, friendship and laughter. Together, we have power. We have the power to help create movement, the power to help create happiness. We have the power to help make life better and more fulfilling. We have the power to be the agents of change and help in our communities. 

Service Above Self is something we Rotarians do every day. It’s in our DNA: a vital part of our character. It helps to define who we are and what we do. Throughout its 40 year history, the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor has accomplished many great things: From building a hospital in Latvia, to contributing toward St. Anthony’s Hospital and the YMCA in Gig Harbor. The club provides care packages to our soldiers from JBLM who are shipping out to harms way. We provided manpower and funds for the restoration of the Midway School at the Harbor History Museum. 

Our commitment to Gig Harbor and its surrounding neighborhoods continues to grow, with projects like the rebuilding of the Orthopedic Guild thrift shop, so vital to those in need in our community. We have provided funding for Gig Harbor’s Play Zone and the Rotary Dog Park in collaboration with PenMet Parks. Along with Pierce County and the Friends of Tacoma Narrows Airport, we are building an observation deck at Tacoma Narrows Airport for all to enjoy. Connie’s Clock, our gift to the City of Gig Harbor in honor of Connie Schick, stands tall in the Finholm District. With the city we will extend the Cushman Trail down to Harborview Drive along the treatment plant. Our very successful Purdy Prison program, gives hope where none was before. It gives these women a second chance.
