The purpose of the KPFD EventFund is twofold:

1) To stimulate economic activity by providing funding to promote and market events that attract out-of-county participants, families and tournament enthusiasts to Kitsap County.

2) To provide family-centered entertainment and healthy recreational opportunities for Kitsap County residents.

To receive funding, events requesting funds must be held at one of the three public facilities developed with KPFD-managed funds and contain the outline of the efforts to promote and market the event. Those facilities are:

• the Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside
• Kitsap Fairgrounds & Events Center and
• facilities within the North Kitsap Regional Event Center boundaries in Poulsbo.

Babe Ruth 2012 World Series in Kitsap was a great success!

On May 18th 2011, the contract was signed between the North Kitsap Babe Ruth organization and the Babe Ruth League, Inc. for the 2012 13-year old World Series to be held here in Kitsap County. The week-long World Series was played at Loeb Field complex at the Kitsap Fairgrounds and Event Center, ball fields improved over the years to tournament level quality facilities with both PFD and County funds.

This was the kind of event and its corresponding economic impact, estimated to be approaching $1 million, that the use of public funding for building or improving recreation and sports facilities was supposed to achieve.

The local chambers cooperated to provide a packet of special offers and discounts to encourage the visitors to use local businesses.

We are proud of the Kitsap County Parks Dept for keeping Field 1 in great tournament quality shape and are proud of the North Kitsap Babe Ruth for following through with their application and winning the 2012 World Series for Kitsap. More info here.

The event was live streamed online, the weather was great and the field was in great shape - I hope Kitsap County was displayed for all to see!
