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, 24 local artists will print hand-carved linoleum blocks like the one below with 2 full-size steamrollers!

Thank you to everyone who visited the first-ever Wayzgoose Kitsap in September, 2018!

Join our Mailing List to receive updates on the Steamroller Print show at Olympic College and next year's festival.

We need LOTS of volunteers for the Festival on Labor Day Weekend, with roles for ages 12 and up! Click Here to view the volunteer roles.


Help make giant prints, support our vendors, guide festival-goers, or craft at the Kids Station. Get in the action, learn something new, and give back to the community.


Just submit your information here and Brie, our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch!
