Where to Play Trivia in Bellingham and Whatcom County

If Bellingham has one thing, it's bars and breweries. Which means there are a TON of places to play trivia! Here are the best spots in and around Bellingham to play trivia, either for free or for a small buy-in fee. Most bars allow teams of around 4-6 players, so gather your friends (the smart ones, of course), and head out for a night of deep thinking and beer drinking. Most bars offer prizes, from cash to gift cards to free food, so make sure to bring your A-game.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
