Project Description

Kitsap Conference Center

KPFD is proud to have helped fund the new Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside. This beautiful waterfront facility opened in August 2004 and can host groups from 10 to 750. The facility is already exceeding booking projections. The Kitsap Conference Center and adjoining public plaza, fountains and shops are spurring economic growth and will provide enjoyment to Kitsap residents and visitors for years to come.

Building A Partnership To Benefit the Economy & Community

The City of Bremerton, in cooperation with Kitsap Transit, the owner of the building above the Conference Center, and Columbia Hospitality, the contracted manager/operator of the Conference Center, has presented a bold plan to install tenant improvements in the remaining 7,000 square feet of space on the third floor. This will allow larger and more complex events and booking by the Conference Center managers. The project would cost in excess of $1 million and $424,000 of PFD funding was approved to support the expansion. The new Expanded facility opened in April 2014. Click here for the proposal details.

In 2012 it was expanded with 7,000 square feet of breakout rooms added on the third floor of the building at an additional cost of $1million.

In 2016, the Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside exceeded all expectations with regard to economic impact, job creation, and guests served.

Today, it is a profitable and popular regional venue for business and community events. The Ground-breaking for this beautiful waterfront facility took place on October 14, 2002. It opened on-time and within budget in August 2004 and is still leading the way for Bremerton’s continuing $150 million redevelopment.
