7 Snohomish Summer Events You Can’t Miss

Summer is almost here, and with it comes a whole slew of exciting events here in Snohomish! From homemade pies to muscle cars and everything in between, here are our top seven summer activities that you won’t want to miss.

1| Sunsets in Snohomish, June 11 to September 10, 3PM-8PM

On the second Saturday of every month this summer, the HDSA is hosting a wine walk tour around our cherished city. With over 150 years of history to admire and a different local winery featured in every visit, these evenings will not be easy to forget. As an added bonus, tickets include a credit toward your choice of the night’s samples, so your favorite bottles will be yours to enjoy for the future! Plan your date night and discover our countless local wineries as you hearken back to a simpler time.

2| Hot Cakes and Hoedown, June 26, 9AM-12PM

Bring your dancing shoes and an empty stomach to the Carnegie lawn for a brunch you won’t soon forget! Settle down for some delicious pancakes made by award-winning chef Cody Castiglia, then grab your cowboy hat and hit the green with Ryan Crowther for a good old-fashioned vinyl hoedown. All donations go toward the Snohomish Food Bank, so you’re providing food for more than just yourself when you attend. Good food, good music, and a good cause, what more can you ask for?

3| Kla Ha Ya Days, July 13 to 17

If you’ve never been a part of the Kla Ha Ya Days here in Snohomish, you are missing out. Every year, the town comes together for a five-day festival, complete with live music, parades, carnival rides, and more delicious food than you can eat in a week. Businesses from all over the city set up booths with plenty of giveaways and freebies, and you can drop by the Gilpin booth to say hi to your favorite real estate team!

Best of all, the whole event is supporting the growth of our community. All of the proceeds go straight back to the people of Snohomish, so your participation is funding local businesses, schools, and neighbors all across our town. Grab your tickets and we’ll see you there!

4| Snohomish Art Walk, August 18

As one of Washington’s oldest towns, Snohomish has deep historical roots that extend back to the 1800s. With those roots comes a rich and lively cultural heritage of art, music, and performance, all of which are on full display at this year’s Snohomish Art Walk! From sculptors to glass blowers to local musicians, the streets will be filled with artists from all over the county giving live demonstrations of their remarkable skills. Take a walk around, enjoy the artworks, and support your local creators in this fun-filled evening of vintage charms and modern renditions.

5| Snohomish Block Party, August 26 to 27

As the summer begins drawing to a close, what better way to wrap things up than with a neighborhood extravaganza? Far beyond your typical local block party, this event features live music from Billboard chart-topper Sir Mix-A-Lot, a comedy night with Joel McHale, dozens of vendors and local musicians, beer gardens, circus acts, and so much more! Tickets are on sale now, so clear your schedule and bring the whole family!

6| Mad Hatter Croquet Costume Derby, September 10, 3PM-7PM

We’re all mad here. In this madcap fundraiser evening at Harvey Field, adults aged 21 and over will join the Snohomish Lion’s Club for a delightful rendition of the classic gentleman’s game. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes and attire reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, including everything from flamingo mallets to playing card suits. Food and drinks will be provided, so don’t be late for this very important date!

7| Classic Car Show, September 24, 10AM-4PM

Do you have a classic car that you don’t know what to do with? Are you captivated by history? Would you like to experience the golden age of America’s automotive industry? Look no further than the annual Snohomish Classic Car Show! We’re thrilled to sponsor this iconic local event for 2022! With hundreds of participants every year, it truly feels like you’ve stepped back into the past. Rock ‘n’ roll music fills the air, hot rods and vintage vehicles are on full display, and every breath carries with it the timeless whiff of barbecue and oil. This event is free to attend, so take a day off and enjoy the show!

There’s so much to do and love about Snohomish in the summertime! We hope to see you at one of these events!
