Mark your calendars for Snoqualmie Winter Lights, an annual holiday tradition in Historic Snoqualmie. The event will be on Saturday, December 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. Santa will arrive at 6:30 p.m. for the holiday tree lighting countdown in Railroad Park, 7971 Railroad Ave SE, where the trees and gazebo will have more lights than you can imagine.
Bundle up and bring family and friends for live music on the main stage featuring the renowned Mount Si High 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 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 from 2 to 6 p.m. The market will be in downtown 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.
After the festival, stay downtown, dine, drink, and delight in the lights.
