The 82nd Snoqualmie Railroad Days festival returns on August 28-29, 2021. This year the Grand Parade returns live and in-person on Saturday, August 28th at 11 am.
The fun continues with: Steam locomotive demonstrations, local restaurants with Grab ‘n Go menus, a Plein Air Paintout with a special month-long treasure hunt, History Comes Alive – virtual and live presentations, Encompass “Kids Fun” handouts, and a variety of vendor booths (due to covid, there will not be food vendor booths). Stop by to say “hi” to the community’s police and fire departments.
The fire department will have kids’ activities (hose prop), emergency vehicle tours, selling all-terrain helmets (at cost), providing fire-related safety information and accepting donations for MSHS PTSA Care Closet (through our Boot Bucks donations). On Saturday evening, enjoy a “Music Crawl” at local venues, and on Sunday, check out a new car show by the Roadsters Northwest Sunday.
Visitors can also step back in time with the Northwest Railway Museum on a 90-minute train excursion that includes a stop at the top of Snoqualmie Falls – tickets are available online at: TrainMuseum.org.
Begun as a fundraiser by volunteer firemen and their wives in 1938, the popular community event is still going strong. Produced today by the Northwest Railway Museum, the festival promotes the small-town spirit and the uniqueness of Snoqualmie with family fun in mind.
The Museum looks forward to returning to a full-blown festival lineup in 2022 but is excited to celebrate some of the Snoqualmie Railroad Days festival traditions in and around the Snoqualmie Depot and historic downtown Snoqualmie in 2021.
