Port-Orchard is the county seat for Kitsap County, located just 13 miles west of Seattle. It is connected to Seattle and Vashon Island by the Washington State Ferries run to Southworth. The town is named after Port Orchard, the strait that separates Bainbridge Island from the Kitsap Peninsula. As of the 2000 census, the population of Port Orchard was 7,693. The city of Port Orchard, and all of Kitsap County, is a popular cultural, arts and entertainment and educational center. Special events, conferences, workshops and festivals abound in the area. A few of the events hosted by the Chamber of Commerce include a Murder Mystery Event, Seagull Calling Festival, Fathoms Street Scramble, Business Golf League, Downtown Arts Walks and much more. A Concert by the Bay series runs May through September at the Port Orchard Waterfront Marina Park, and the Downtown Arts Walks are May through October, the 3rd Friday of every month. The Kitsap Harbor Festival is Memorial Day weekend at both the Port Orchard and Bremerton marinas. Also, a farmers market is held on Saturdays, April through September. The Festival of Chimes & Lights is a delightful time filled with entertainment. Held the first Saturday in December, it includes an arts and crafts bazaar, storytelling, hot cider and cocoa, hay wagon rides, the tree lighting and arrival of Santa. Lighted boats dazzle in the marina, fireworks and a holiday pet parade are also featured in this fun, family event.

Port Orchard Weather & Climate

Northwest Washington , near the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, has a fairly temperate climate. The temperature of the salt water surrounding the islands doesnft vary greatly throughout the seasons, so it helps cool the air surrounding the islands. Northwest Washington experiences frequent cloud cover, fog and drizzle. Misty morning will be followed by partial clearing and occasional showers. An umbrella always comes in handy. Evenings are usually warm with a light ocean breeze. Temperatures range from low 30s in winter to mid 80s in summer. Coastal conditions are generally much more harsh than those in the Puget Sound. @
