the greater poulsbo chamber of commerce


Greater Poulsbo is a deceptively productive economy. The north end of the Kitsap Peninsula is far less dependent on military spending and the aeronautics industry, which drive the central and southern portions of the county. Diversity is the common denominator, from the "big dogs" like Gravitec, Watson, Avalara, Trulife, Marine View Beverage, and Twiss Labs, to the unique entrepreneurships like Blue Frog Solar, Well Being Health Center, Valley Nursery, Orbea Signs and Marina Market.

We're best known for our vibrant, waterfront shopping district, but our economic drivers may also be found along the Highway 305 corridor, or in the Marketplace District (known to locals as Olhava), or in the vast Twelve Trees business complex, nestled in the trees along the Hood Canal.

"Business is booming in Greater Poulsbo is not a cliché  -- it's a fact.

Poulsbo, commonly referred to as"Little Norway on the Fjord," is full of breathtaking scenery and a great variety of attractions. Nowhere in the Pacific Northwest will you find this combination for visitors to enjoy in a weekend or for an extended stay. Nestled in a valley between majestic Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges, this authentic Norwegian community invites you to experience nature's beauty, Scandinavian hospitality and old world charm. Combining that heritage with friendly businesses makes this area an enriching and captivating place to visit.

Explore the heart of Poulsbo on Front Street with its wonderful old murals, world famous bakeries, arts and crafts galleries, and specialty shops. Poulsbo also has several additional shopping areas that range from "big box" stores to small hometown shops in Poulsbo Village, along Highway 305 and Viking Avenue, and the Olhava area. Poulsbo hosts annual ethnic events such as Viking Fest, Scandia Midsommarfest and Yule Fest. See our event calendar for those dates.

Stop by the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce office to pick up Chamber or Visitor information. You will find us at 19735 10th Avenue NE, Suite S100 (across the highway from Elmer's). Our chamber draws its strength from nearly 400 businesses, organizations, and individuals that support the association through their memberships.
