There will be outdoor dining in in both areas on Friday, August 14th, starting at noon throughout the weekend until Sunday evening, August 16th, to support local restaurants.

According to the City of Snoqualmie Public Information Officer Joan Pilego:
“The city understands that Phase 2 restrictions on indoor seating have greatly impacted restaurants’ ability to serve customers indoors. The City wants to help local restaurants through this program and encourages everyone to mask up, eat outside, and enjoy. Check out some of the local shops, while following their Phase 2 guidelines.”
