"Belfair is the home of the Taste of Hood Canal, which is an August tradition. From grilled oysters served up by the North Mason Chamber to live music and a beer garden, it has something for everyone."
Visit Belfair, Located at the head of Washington’s scenic Hood Canal, Belfair sits as a gateway with access to both the south and north shores of the canal.Belfair serves as the area’s main commercial center, and is one of the county’s largest designated urban growth areas. With improvements to State Route 3 nearing completion, Belfair is poised on the brink of an explosion of business and residential development.
Local citizens enjoy two major shopping centers, several financial institutions, various medical, dental and chiropractic services, a variety of restaurants and shops, and the Mosquito Fleet Winery, which is open to the public.

Complimentary maps, brochures and personal assistance are offered in both the Visitor Center and Belfair Licensing.
Belfair is also home of the spectacular Theler Wetlands, a wildlife sanctuary and popular spot for runners and jobbers, or those who simply seek a refreshing stroll in nature. Photography enthusiasts enjoy a kaleidoscope of opportunities as the trails give access to plants, birds and animals in their natural habitats – forests, wetlands, saltwater and freshwater marshes, swamps and river estuaries. Four separate trails are open to the public free of charge during daylight hours, seven days a week. However, our canine friends are not allowed access to the trails.
