The popular Finally Friday Art and Wine Walks begins it’s sixth season this week in Historic Downtown Snoqualmie.

Locals can stroll along Railroad Avenue from 6 to 9 p.m. on the last Friday of each month from May through September, while listening to live music, watching artists in action, chatting with friends, and dropping into shops along the way for wine tastings from local and regional wineries and more.

Participating merchants include the Art Gallery of SnoValley, Bindelstick, the Black Dog, Carmichael’s Hardware, Corners Gift Shop, Down to Earth, Heirloom Cookshop, Kevin Hauglie’s Farmers Ins., Sigillo Cellars, Snoqualmie Falls Candy Factory, the Northwest Train Museum, and Wild Hare Vintage.

Local restaurants will also participate by providing light appetizers paired with the wines in some of the venues. Gianfranco’s Italian Restorante will be at the Art Gallery of SnoValley, the Snoqualmie Brewery and Taproom will be at Corners Gifts, Copperstone Family Restaurant at Down to Earth, the Snoqualmie Falls Candy Shop at Wild Hare Vintage, Heirloom Cookshop at Heirloom, and Woodman Lodge at the Northwest Train Museum.

While the art walk is free for all ages, the wine walk is $20 online until 2 p.m. the day of the event and $25 at the door the evening of the event. Admission includes a souvenir wine glass, ten complimentary tasting tokens, and a map of the event. Pre-paid and day of event admissions are available at Kevin Hauglie’s Farmers Ins., as well as cash only at Corners Gift Shop.
