GREAT WINE FUN!
At Eleven Winery, we're all about making great wine, and making it fun! We believe the better the wine, the more fun you'll have. We produce a wide range of wines, something for every palate. Located on Bainbridge Island, we're a bit out of the mainstream, but are a part of a small community of winemakers who are making waves across the state. Visit our tasting room near the ferry terminal any time, or tour our winery on the weekend (on certain weekends you can visit all of the wineries of Bainbridge Island). We feature live music at the winery on Saturdays.

Bainbridge Island Special Needs Foundation (BISNF) also known as “Stephens House” was established in 2002. They operate a day program for young adults with intellectual disabilities, focusing on quality of life enhancements. For many, this program offers the next step after leaving the public school system by providing continued structure and education. BISNF’s goals are to increase physical health, mental well-being and social interaction for participants while providing respite for caregivers. The program also offers training and practice in life skills and appropriate social behaviors.
Activities include field trips, swimming and daily exercises, art projects, computer learning, and small work contracts for local businesses.

“Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.”—All Music Guide
Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist DMITRI MATHENY has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music).
An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
Winery open 12-5pm. Live music 1-4pm.
On Sunday, May 27th, we will be donating 100% of our tasting fees (that’s right:100%), and 10% of all bottle purchases to Kitsap Pride. This event will be held at the Winery location only, which is open 12pm-5pm.
Kitsap County had it’s first “Pride” gathering over 20 years ago. It was not that long ago where a turnout of 35 was a huge success. Back then it was West Sound Family and Gay County organizing the events. Some of those first events were held out at Scenic Beach State Park in Seabeck. There was always a volleyball game going, food on the grill and pot-luck dishes from the community. We even had live music like the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Chorus.
The event quickly outgrew the park and moved to private property at John Foose’s Fox Farm in Southworth. We used John’s studio/workshop to host the pot-luck. John would often cater for us with delicious ribs, chicken or a pig. It was a beautiful setting with tables set up under the orchard trees. This is where we first added vendor booths and kicked up the entertainment with performers such as Lucie Blue Trembley, Magdalen Hsu-Li, and Emma Wall. We had some great community art projects including the art car. We had to say goodbye to Fox Farm as we grew too big and the property was sold.
In 2005, the move was made to Evergreen Park in Bremerton to our first public pride event. We were finally OUT! There was so much to figure out working with the City of Bremerton and the Parks department. There were permits, fees and a million dollars in insurance. We significantly expanded the vendor area and had the stage going from noon to 5 pm.
This year we will again be at Evergreen.
Kitsap Pride Network was formed in 2007 as a network of local organizations collaborating to celebrate community in Kitsap County. Networking together eases the planning and execution burden off of any one organization and allows for more community input. If you would like to get involved to support your local pride let us know. Send us a message.
Today you can expect 40 booths, food trucks & vendors, and great entertainment like Kim Archer, Go Periscope, Caravan of Glam, and Vicci Martinez – just to name a few. Plus local talented performers.
Join Kitsap Pride in their Mission as we Celebrate, Support and Unite our community.
