Bainbridge Island Chinese Connection - Chinese New Year Celebration 2009 Year of the Ox2009

Getting to Bainbridge Island

Beautiful Bainbridge Island is just a short, scenic 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, and an easy drive from anywhere in Kitsap County.

From Seattle

Take the Seattle-Bainbridge Ferry from Coleman Dock (Pier 51). Relax and enjoy the view of the city and Mt. Rainier for 35 minutes. Upon disembarking the ferry, exit the ferry building, walk up the hill, and turn left onto Winslow Way. Walk two long blocks to join in the festivities. Get the latest ferry schedule here >

From Kitsap County and the Olympic Peninsula

Take Highway 305 South across the Agate Passage Bridge and onto Bainbridge Island. After 11 miles, turn right onto Winslow Way.

PARKING: Please be aware that the town’s main street, Winslow Way, will be closed to vehicular traffic on the Sunday of the Festival and Parade. Limited street parking will be available on side roads.
