The City of North Bend will close NW 14th Street between SR 202 and Boalch Avenue NW on Tuesday, July 7th at 7AM in order to remove several large trees located near the roadway.  The roadway will reopen Sunday, July 12th at 7AM. Detours will be marked.

Downtown Block Party Adds New Event 

It’s almost time for the  North Bend Downtown Block Party and Legends Car Show, which happens on Saturday, July 18th noon to 11PM. and Sunday, July 19th 8AM to 4PM.  As always, organizers say the Block Party will have a great lineup of entertainment, music, activities, local food and drinks for the entire family.

The Legends Car Show is new to the Block Party this year and will take place on Sunday, July 19th, filling downtown streets with classics, hot rods and American muscle cars. Headliner bands for the 2015 Block Party are Spike and the Impalers and Heart by Heart.

This year a new, and FREE, Bike Valet service is being hosted by Mt Si Mountain Bike Team – an option to help residents get to the Block Party without their cars.

Volunteers, sponsors, and vendors are still being sought for the event. Please contact Community & Economic Development Director Gina Estep at gestep@northbendwa.gov for more information, including how to obtain a vendor or sponsor application or volunteer for the event.

Mountain View Plaza Open Air Market 

The North Bend Visitor Information Center and Mountain View Gallery, located at 250 Bendigo Blvd is open for business and growing. The new venue includes a covered plaza area which can be perfect for an open air market and pedestrian gathering.

The City of North Bend, in partnership with the Visitors Information Center, is planning to transform this Plaza into an open air market this summer, fall and winter and is seeking any farm, vendor, or entrepreneur who is interested in hosting an open air market, or a portion thereof, and selling products such as vegetables, flowers, berries, and cherries, etc.

The space can be leased to one vendor selling several of the previously mentioned products or multiple vendors each specializing in a particular product.

Those interested in taking part in an open air market at the new Mountain View Plaza please contact Gina Estep by email at gestep@northbendwa.gov.  Please include the following information: Vendor Name, Contact Person, Phone Number, Email Address, Product Type and Desired Sales Season.
