Come to Railroad Park for a showcase of amazing art by local creators.

Art in the Park starts at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16, and runs through 4 p.m. Sunday. Painters, potters, carvers, sculptors, weavers, spinners, photographers, jewelry makers, journal makers and quilters will be demonstrating and displaying their art for the public to enjoy, and in some cases actually give a try.

Help create a quilt for a child in the Ronald McDonald House; weave a section of a scarf and get a chance to win the finished article; lend a hand on a community painting project; play a drum created by John Mullen of the Snoqualmie Tribe; listen to folklore artist Bob Antone captivate audiences of all ages with stories surrounding his art; and watch a video presentation about Snoqualmie’s history provided by the Historical Society. In addition to a wide variety of visual arts and demonstrations, the Arts Stage and Wine Garden will provide entertainment from talented musicians, vocalists, and performers along with a selection of wines to savor.

Additionally, the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce building will have an exhibit of railroad-themed art by local artists.
