The Snoqualmie Valley will be alive with the holiday spirit the first weekend in December – with holiday festivals happening just about everywhere.
Snoqualmie will be ringing in the holiday season with Snoqualmie Winter Lights on Saturday, December 7th. The annual holiday tradition takes place in historic downtown from 5PM to 8PM.
Santa arrives at 6:30PM for the tree lighting countdown in Railroad Park, 7971 Railroad Ave SE, where the trees and gazebo have been decked out in true Clark Griswold fashion.
The community is invited to bundle up and enjoy live music on the main stage featuring the Snoqualmie Middle School Jazz Band, Sno Valley Winds, and a handbell choir to ring in the season.
Take selfies with Santa while telling him your wish list. Carol through the streets in a horse-drawn carriage. Warm up with cocoa, cider, and cookies. Have a cup of joe and meet Snoqualmie police officers at the Coffee-with-a-Cop booth.There will also be an ice-carving demo and ice art installation along the boardwalk.
Further down the boardwalk, experience the Euro-style outdoor Holiday Winter Market hosted by Heirloom Cookshop happens from 2PM to 6PM at the corner of Railroad Ave SE and SE River St. Find handmade gifts and seasonal treasures by local artists and crafters, and enjoy specialty foods, live music, and carolers.
‘Tis the Season!
