Celebrate the holiday season


The holidays bring a variety of festive, wintry events to Bainbridge Island. Check out some recent highlights, and consider joining us at Winter Wonderland or the Solstice Walks this month!


Kicking off the holidays with the Winter Studio Tour and Christmas in the Country

This past weekend was a busy one, with both the Winter Studio Tour and Christmas in the Country offering self-guided tours around the Island.

Earing art pieces at the Winter Studio Tour

PSE was proud to sponsor the 34th year of the Winter Studio Tour. The twice-annual event is a self-guided art show across Bainbridge Island, where participants can meet local artists in their studios or in local community halls.


The artists work in a variety of mediums, from fiber, to photography, to furniture. This year’s winter participants could see 56 different artists across 7 studios!  For more information about the winter and summer tours, visit the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour website

Christmas in the Country is a festive annual event where participants can visit historic homes and buildings across rural Bainbridge Island, meet vendors and listen to carolers.

PSE and our partner TechniArt were vendors at St. Barnabas Church, providing energy-efficient lightbulbs and information to eventgoers. For more information about the event, visit the Christmas in the Country website
