Snoqualmie Valley Block Party returns Sept. 14

The Block Party will be located at Center Blvd SE in Snoqualmie from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Snoqualmie Valley Block Party is returning for its seventh year, bringing the Valley together for a time of community. The block party will be located at Center Boulevard Southeast in Snoqualmie from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 14.

The block party was started and organized by Dr. Jason Green of Snoqualmie Optimal Health Chiropractic in 2012. Green said he wanted to start a block party to unite the Valley.

“We wanted everyone in the Valley to come out, and we wanted to bring people together and have fun,” he said. “There is something for everyone.”

Green said the block party is kid-friendly and they try to design it with families in mind. This year, the Valley can expect to see some 60 vendors including Forterra, People United for Pets, Encompass, DMW Martial Arts, Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, Beehive Creations, MarkBerryArt, and Crew Cup Coffee Rowsters. Live entertainment will include performances by the Cascade Dance Academy. Kids activities will include bouncy houses, face painting, a library bus, and the Snoqualmie fire truck. To support local restaurants near Snoqualmie Ridge, Green said the block party will not have food vendors besides the Sweet Treats Cookie Dough cart.

“The best part is the day of the event,” Green said. “It’s a great and fun community event.”

Snoqualmie Valley Block Party is sponsored by the Snoqualmie YMCA, Sno Falls Credit Union, Snoqualmie Physical Therapy, Frankie’s Pizza, Snoqualmie Modern Dental Care, Wallace Painting LLC, All Weather Heating and Air Conditioning, Big Star Performing Arts Studio and Aahaar an Indian Eatery.
