Festival at Mt. Si brings 3 days of jam-packed of fun to North Bend this weekend

It’s that time of year – summer festival time. This weekend North Bend celebrates its small town spirit with the Festival at Mt. Si – and they do it in a big way with three jam-packed days of community fun.

The fun kicks off on Friday, August 9th  and runs through Sunday, August 11th at Si View Park, 400 SE Orchard Drive.

The Festival brings entertainment, music, activities, arts and crafts vendors, local food and drinks for the entire family.

Relax in the beer and wine garden while supporting the Festival and the local Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club. Enjoy jazz, blues, rock, country and more with live performances on two stages. Participate in the annual chili cookoff, the parade, cherry pie eating contest and dessert contest. Kids will also love the Fun Zone.

Saturday evening ends with the anticipate, annual fireworks display at Torguson Park sponsored by the Wyrsch family.
