Where do you find a Cherry Pie eating contest, wife carrying contest, live music and more every August? The Festival at Mount Si in North Bend, WA is where!
Mark your calendars for the second weekend in August every year and take part in The Festival at Mount Si! This North Bend tradition (over 60 years) has evolved into a must event for people in and around the Snoqualmie Valley. For the past 22, the Festival has been managed by the NBECA. Entry to the festival is free and there are plenty of activities to enjoy Friday thru Sunday.
What makes the Festival at Mount Si so special is the traditions and community involvement. With a beautiful backdrop of Mount Si, Rattlesnake Ledge, and the surrounding peaks, this mountain town festival is a hit!
Festival events include:
Live music, cherry pie eating contest, beer garden, pet contest, kids events chili cook-off. Each day you can find food, arts and crafts vendors, community organizations and more in the booth area of the festival. Saturday events include the parade in the morning and the fireworks display on Saturday night. The parade is led by the procession of kids who participate on their bikes, scooters, and more!
This community event is made possible by a host of volunteers and sponsors. For more information about the Festival at Mount Si check out their page here.
The Festival is another reason why living in Snoqualmie Valley is special!
