Second annual Real Twin Peaks Weekend starts Friday

“We are ready and excited for fans from all over the world to join us.”

On Feb. 24, 1990, agent Dale Cooper drove into the fictitious town of Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of high school student Laura Palmer.

Thirty-five years and 48 Snoqualmie-based episodes later, the cult classic and critically acclaimed mystery drama TV series maintains a worldwide fan base.

“Last year, 8,000 people came out from all over the place to celebrate. It’s like the Mecca for them,” said SnoValley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kelly Coughlin. “You watch people look around and hear, ‘Oh my gosh, I remember this, I saw this,’ and I love that.”

Panel discussions, tours of filming locations and short film viewing parties are among the many weekend events scheduled for Feb. 23 through Feb. 25, along with a special appearance from one of the show’s most notable actors.

The chamber, alongside the North Bend Downtown Foundation and local organizations and businesses, has been planning this weekend since July 2023.

“Our communities have invested boundless thought and effort into crafting ‘The Real Twin Peaks Days,’ ensuring an unforgettable experience for fans,” Coughlin said. “We’ve carefully selected the activities and sites to guarantee that each moment resonates with the mysterious spirit of Twin Peaks.”
