WOW. What a response we're getting. It's beautiful to see the area businesses and the people of Brinnon step up to to make Celebrate Brinnon! an event you don't want to miss.
Food, music - lots of music, silent auction - really cool offerings, local produce, stories. Learn about our elk herd and the bird life of the Brinnon area. Get to know Brinnon.
Brinnon is a beautiful rural village on Hood Canal, a natural fjord rich in marine life. It's a great place to live, grow a family, and start an entrepreneurial business.
Celebrate Brinnon! is sponsored by the Brinnon Group, dedicated to sensible development consistent with our rural character. Proceeds go toward legal fees challenging the 'urban scale' resort at Black Point, and to promoting appropriate economic possibilities in Brinnon. See more in Brinnon Planning.
