Polar Bear Plunge

The annual Birch Bay Polar Bear Plunge attracts hundreds of people each year who brave the cool January 1 temperatures and run into the ocean. It’s a fun (and chilly) way to celebrate the new year. Even if you don’t plan on jumping in, there’s something fun about watching other people brave the cold water.

Sand Sculpture Competition

Get ready to dig in. It’s amazing how with a little imagination the beach at Birch Bay transforms into a series of sand castles and sand sculptures. Be creative and build sand sculptures such as geometric freeforms, sea turtles, alligators, mermaids, mythical castles, or your favorite pet.

This two-day event features music, vendors, and of course, sandcastles! Registration is free and it’s open to families or more competitive teams. Awards are handed out each day at 4:30pm.

Ring of Fire and Hope

The annual Birch Bay Ring of Fire & Hope takes place each December 31st at 7pm. Everyone heads down to the shore and lights a biodegradable road flare and places it near the water. With people all around the bay participating, the effect is beautiful and the entire bay looks like a string of red Christmas lights from end to end.
