Snoqualmie Railroad Days 2018

August 17-19, 2018 in historic downtown Snoqualmie, just 30 minutes from Seattle!

Snoqualmie Railroad Days is a community festival celebrating Trains, Timber, & Tradition.  It is hosted by the Northwest Railway Museum and supported by the community.  Founded in 1939, this year represents the 79th annual festival.

Railroad Days features a wide variety of entertainment and activities, and is well known for its visual and performing arts performances and exhibits.  Artists in Action, live music, living history, the Plein Air Paint Out, a community drum circle and the Art Stage are all included in this year's action-packed festival. There are some unique performances in the annual Grand Parade, too, and don't forget about the Legend's Car Show on Sunday!

And speaking of the Grand Parade, this year's Grand Marshall is City Clerk Jodi Warren, who has served the City of Snoqualmie for more than 22 years.  

Have you ever wanted to be in a parade? This year's Grand Parade also features a Kiddie Bike Parade.  Why not bring your whole family out with decorated bikes, wagons and animals?  You can meet in Riverview Park by 11 AM; preregistration is NOT required. 

Of course there are trains, too!  Excursions on the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad will depart Snoqualmie on Saturday and Sunday at 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM, and will include a stop at the Train Shed exhibit building.  Gas motor car rides on the Kalamazoo will be available from Snoqualmie, too!

Snoqualmie Railroad Days has much more to offer!  Check out the Schedule of Events to find something of interest for you and your family.
