Welcome to the Block Party

North Bend’s annual Block Party began in 2009 as a way to promote and celebrate the city’s downtown.

It was instantly popular, and today offers a venue for music and live entertainment, family-friendly activities, vendors, food and snacks, and community activities.

wo different stages showcase Snoqualmie Valley bands, singers, dancers, and contests. The Main Stage is at North Bend Way and Main Street. The Community Stage is at the intersection of Bendigo Boulevard and North Bend Way.

The two biggest live shows Saturday evening are locally based rock band Spike and the Impalers, and tribute band Heart by Heart, who headline the event.

Don’t forget that the Block Party is completely free. You can hear the shows, and take part in or experience the games and contests, completely free of charge.

You’ll also find locals services and vendors, as well as creations by local artists on display.

Welcome to the Block Party. See what North Bend’s downtown and the wider community have to offer.

The city’s main road, North Bend Way, will be closed during the event. Detours will be available, and parking can be found on surrounding streets and lots.
