The North Bend Downtown Foundation and the city of North Bend are ramping up for Downtown Block Party, an annual festival that brings Snoqualmie Valley together with live music and performances, a free Kid Zone, tons of shopping, food, beer, wine – and community – July 21, from 12 to 11 p.m.

This year, the NBDF welcomes more local and regional musicians to the stage, such as Creme Tangerine, Petty Differences, Spike and the Impalers, LocoMotive, Kellee Bradley, Lights Out, and The Amber Lanterns. They will be sharing performances by many of our treasured local organizations, too. Ignite Dance and Yoga will be offering a free yoga session, and there will be performances by Ignite Dance and Cascade Dance, DMW Martial Arts.

The Kid Zone at Block Party will be hopping with a variety of bouncing, sliding, climbing and playing opportunities for tiny tots all the way to teens. Local organizations like Encompass, the Downtown Foundation and the city are getting together to keep much of it free for play all day, from 12 to 5 p.m.

Shopping in Snoqualmie Valley is always fun, and Block Party will be highlighting that with our growing outdoor vendor exhibition, featuring local merchants, artisans, crafters and other organizations.

For more information, locals can follow the Downtown Block Party on Facebook. Those interested in participating as a vendor or a sponsor can connect with Bre Keveren, at
