Snoqualmie Days Festival Provides A Ton Of Fun

Snoqualmie Days Festival Comes Alive on Friday evening, August 19 and ALL day on Saturday, August 20!

Join the fun as the Snoqualmie Days festival returns in all of its full-blown fun this year. Snoqualmie Days (formerly known as Snoqualmie Railroad Days) is the annual celebration of Snoqualmie and the Snoqualmie Valley, its people, and its culture!

The festival began in 1939 to raise funds for Snoqualmie’s first fire engine. Since then, it has grown into a full-blown festival with events and activities for the whole family.
