Spring in Gig Harbor kicks off the start of the annual events that locals and visitors enjoy most about being in this community. The first Saturday artwalk runs year round but ramps up as the warm weather begins. Local outdoor markets open up offering fresh fruits and vegetables as well as locally made crafts. Book a whale watching trip or rent a classic wooden boat to enjoy the water. Get a front row seat at the annual Gig Harbor Paddler’s Cup or take in the craft beer scene at the annual Gig Harbor Beer Festival.
