Rock the Dock

Rock the Dock is our Summer Concert Series. Kicking off on the Fourth of July.

The docks will definitely be rocking this summer in Bremerton. Now in its fourth year, the Rock the Dock concert series on the Louis Mentor Boardwalk at Bremerton Marina has been such a success that this year organizers have extended the night's schedule and made it three hours long. This eight concert series kicks off on the fourth of July and continues on and Saturday nights through August. The line-up of exceptional talent has something for all music tastes, from folk to country, pop, alternative music and good old rock ‘n roll.

The series kicks off with a bang on Monday, July 4 with not two, but four bands performing for a special Independence Day celebration, followed by the Sinclair Inlet Fireworks Show. Kitsap County’s own James Hunnicutt will start the celebrations at 5:00 p.m. followed by Nuthin Street, who will take the stage at 6:00 p.m. Next up at 7p.m. is THE FAME RIOT and a 8p.m. Erotic City - Prince Tribute will play through until 10:00 p.m. The fireworks will follow at 10:30 p.m.

The free concert series is made possible by a partnership of the Port of Bremerton, City of Bremerton and the Downtown Bremerton Association who all worked collaboratively to invest in and grow the series. Not only have they pulled out all stops in booking top talent this year, they have also hired a professional booking and production company and upgraded the sound setup to enhance the listening experience. Added to the mix is the new canopy, recently purchased by the City to cover the stage. This combination of amenities promises to make the Bremerton Boardwalk one of the finest outdoor music venues in the Puget Sound area.

“A concert series of this caliber is something you’d expect to see in cities much larger than Bremerton,” says Michael Goodnow, executive director, Downtown Bremerton Association. “We have a combination that’s hard to beat: top notch talent, a gorgeous waterfront setting that is the envy of many cities and easy access. The venue is a short walk from the ferry terminal and we have room at the marina for more than 100 boaters. We hope these concerts will become must- do events on everyone’s summer calendar and look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the Peninsula, Seattle and beyond, and showing off our revitalized Bremerton Harbor District.”

The concerts are from 5 to 8 p.m. (with the exception of July 4 when the music will run 5-10 p.m.). Start the party early! The  food vendors and the beer and wine garden open at 4 p.m.

Stay tuned for our 2016 line up announcement.
