Wayzgoose Kitsap Arts Festival


  • ZINC | edmonds 102 3rd Avenue South Edmonds, WA, 98020 United States (map)

We're BACK for our second year, taking over the streets of downtown Bremerton with print making and letterpress and all things inky. Join us for Labor Day weekend!!!

What's A Wayzgoose?

The first known Wayzgoose, thrown in 1681, was a boozy summer feast hosted by a Letterpress Printer for his Print Shop employees. The printing community embraced this annual tradition, often sharing a harvest goose... hence the name, Wayzgoose.

Today, the Wayzgoose has been reimagined as a public arts festival. At Wayzgoose Kitsap, 32 local artists will print hand-carved linoleum blocks with 2 full-size steamrollers! There will also be 27 letterpress, book arts and paper vendors!
