The Bainbridge fire district officially became the “Bainbridge Island Fire Department” in 1994, and two years later, plans were made to construct a new station on the north end of the island on Phelps Road that would include a training facility for career and volunteer members. In 2009, the community passed the first ever Emergency Medical Services levy which provided funds to hire firefighter/EMTs to open another fire station, Station 22 on Bucklin Hill Road. And early last year, island voters approved a $16 million bond measure to pay for new and improved facilities, as well as a 9-cent levy increase fore more firefighters to staff the department’s north end station.

By 1955 there was a fire station in Winslow, manned by volunteers, who dispatched all fire calls. The island’s first paid, shift firefighters were hired in 1978, and the department saw rapid growth and expansion over the next two decades with the construction of a new station on Madison Avenue.

ARTS and culture

Once you’ve had your fill of the island’s natural assets - the beaches, trails and parks - you can be sure to find something close at hand to tantalize your creative side indoors as well. Bainbridge Performing Arts, the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, Ovation! Performing Arts Northwest and Island Theater all offer praise-gathering productions on a regularly rotating schedule. There’s always something to see. Also, Bainbridge Cinemas and the historic Lynwood Theater offer brand-new blockbusters and speciality silver screen fare as well, including revived classics and live ballet and special concert events broadcast via satellite from around the globe. Looking instead to bust a move? Maybe cut a little rug? No sweat - unless you want to, of course. You’re never far from the chance to dance on Bainbridge Island. Between the Treehouse Café, Bainbridge Brewing, Pegasus Coffee and a constant calendar of shows at Rolling Bay Hall, you’ll have a chance to rock here on the rock almost any night of the week. Most of all though, Bainbridge is renowned for its galleries and museums, including the epicenter of island art: the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Within an easy walk from there, guests can enjoy monthly rotating displays at Bainbridge Arts & Crafts, Danger, Roby-King Galleries, the Steven Fey fine art photography gallery and more. For a real special treat, be sure to check out downtown Winslow’s First Friday Art Walk. This social staple runs from 6 to 8 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. Get out there early to beat the crowds and make sure you get a taste of the best wines. Art is at the heart of island living. Whatever moves you, bet you’ll find it on Bainbridge.

Mahler had an exceptionally interesting - yet tumultuous - life. His music evokes an expansive emotional gamut, ranging from the most despairing to the frivolous. Conducting for the world’s greatest orchestras and opera houses, Mahler left behind some of the most significant work in the symphonic repertory. He continuously pushed at the boundaries of form, scope, orchestration, and performance. In his First Symphony we get a glimpse of this

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpect edly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly — and uproariously — exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

In 1803 a manuscript was discovered in a Benedictine monastery in Germany. This manuscript contains beautiful poetry and songs written by wandering students and minstrels in the 12th and 13th centuries. Hardly sacred in nature, the poems satirize, celebrate, complain about, and revel in all aspects of life. First performed in 1937, this anthology of poems and songs for large orchestra, chorus, children’s choir, and soloists has become a favorite of audiences all over the world.

For the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra’s final concerts this year the orchestra turns to celebrated American composers including John Williams and Aaron Copland.

Although the opera itself was not successful, this suite of extracted music has moved audiences with its beautiful melodies and nostalgic overtones. This program also showcases the 2017 winner of the BSO’s annual Young Artist Concerto Competition in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Join us as we bring this monumental season to a peaceful and stunning conclusion. Tickets, $21 for adults, $18 for seniors and free for youths younger than 18 (with paying adult) are available at

Opportunities to get in on the action on Bainbridge are everywhere, and whether you’re going out for the team or looking for something a little more off the beaten path, the island has what it takes to get you moving. Though it may seem that much of the local emphasis is on youth sports, the high school’s many championship-earning teams and clubs as well as the various youth leagues, old-timers too will find plenty of ways to shake the dust off as they explore and enjoy the multitude of recreational options on the island. Whether you’re looking for beaches to relax on, trails to hike and bike, boats to sail or games to play, Bainbridge has it all.

Ferries – instrumental to island life Sailing Schedule Bainbridge Island to Seattle

From a ferry yard on the shores of Eagle Harbor to a boat being included on the seal of the city, ferries are tightly woven into the fabric of Bainbridge Island. Washington has 24 ferries running between 20 terminals throughout Puget Sound. One of the most popular routes is between the island and Seattle. With two boats servicing the island — the Tacoma and the Wenatchee — the route is a major gateway onto the Kitsap Peninsula. The ferry run between Bainbridge and Seattle carried 6.3 million riders in 2015, including 3 million walk-on passengers.
