Mayors Katherine Ross and Rob McFarland have proclaimed February 24, 2023, Twin Peaks Day.
For three decades now, the iconic TV series has drawn tourists year-round to Snoqualmie North Bend and the rest of the Snoqualmie Valley, placing many City locations and businesses into popular culture history.
February 24th was chosen because it is the date celebrated worldwide by Twin Peaks fans as the day FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper arrived in the town of Twin Peaks.
At 11:30 a.m., North Bend City Councilmember Mary Miller read Mayor McFarland’s proclamation at the site of the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign, as it appeared in the series. Gathered around were a community of fans, the SnoValley Chamber, and the North Bend Downtown Foundation.
This will mark the sixth consecutive year the two cities have recognized Twin Peaks Day. Proclaiming an official Twin Peaks Day creates positive publicity for the two towns and increases tourism for the Snoqualmie Valley.
The television show Twin Peaks debuted in 1990 and captivated viewers worldwide with scenes filmed in the Snoqualmie Valley.
Fans have been celebrating Twin Peaks Day, most likely since 1991. The morning gathering on the 24th at the sign location has been a tradition for many years now.
This weekend, local fans and those from around the world will be celebrating alongside the SnoValley Chamber and the Downtown Foundation for an entire weekend of themed fun from Friday, February 24th, through Sunday, February 26th.
The event, The Real Twin Peaks Days, will include dinner and dancing, a charity auction, themed panels, cosplay, and more. Many downtown businesses in the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie will be participating and look forward to celebrating. Coordinators will be raising money for a local charity, Mama’s Hands.
Find yourself some cherry pie, darn fine coffee, and remember you’re likely to see lots of fans around the Valley this weekend.
