From early-morning foot races to fireworks over the harbor, the Grand Old 4th of July is the product of generous gifts and hard work from volunteers, local businesses and you – our very own community members.


Are you looking to promote your business and give back to our island community? With a 4th of July sponsorship, you’re giving countless island residents the gift of a beloved hometown tradition. Each year’s celebration draws crowds between 25,000 – 30,000 people. We have several levels of sponsorship available for the Grand Old 4th, each with its own opportunity to be a part of the celebration. For more information about sponsorship benefits, contact Rex Oliver at (206) 842-3700.


Over six months of planning goes into our annual Independence Day bash, and it wouldn’t be possible without the help of our tireless volunteers. Our team of over 100 community members keep the festivities running smoothly, starting bright and early on the morning of the 4th. To join our volunteer family, please contact Mickey Molnaire at [email protected]


Each year a fantastic fireworks display over Eagle Harbor is presented by Bainbridge Fireworks, a non-profit organization that raises money from Bainbridge Island businesses, residents, and individuals dedicated to keeping the spirit of the 4th of July alive. Gifts are accepted throughout the year, with an easy donation option available through PayPal.
