There’s nothing better than a small town festival, full of music, food, art…and wine! I’m excited to share (and attend!) Celebrate Woodinville next Saturday, August 19th with Ben and our girls!
What: Celebrate Woodinville
Where: Wilmot Gateway Park, 17301 131st Avenue NE Woodinville, WA 98072
When: Saturday, August 19th, 8am – 5:30pm
Small town charm, community spirit, live music, local libations and bites, arts, exhibitors, and activities all add up to a fabulously fun festival in Woodinville! Invite your family, friends, and neighbors and join in the merriment of this great community celebration on Saturday, August 19.
Start your day with a delicious pancake breakfast from 8 to 10:30 AM, hosted by Woodinville Fire & Rescue, then scope out your ideal spot to enjoy the 39th annual community parade along 175th Street in Downtown Woodinville from 11AM to Noon. From there, make your way to Wilmot Gateway Park for a condensed footprint from festivals past. The entire afternoon will take place in the park, kicking off at 12:30 PM with Xakary the Magician on the main stage. A variety of fun children’s activities will be hosted by the Northshore YMCA, so bring the whole family to enjoy the entire day!
Throughout the afternoon, you can listen to free music in the Woodinville Wine Country wine, beer & cider garden under the arbor, while enjoying tasty menu options from local restaurants and food trucks. A terrific collection of exhibitors will be on hand, as well as an all-new juried art show. In addition, the Woodinville Farmers Market will be located on the festival grounds. Just steps down the trail, at Woodin Creek Park, the always popular “Basset Bash” will delight the whole family, with prizes awarded for best waddle, best howl, and longest ears.

About Celebrate Woodinville
Celebrate Woodinville is presented by the Woodinville Chamber, in partnership with the City of Woodinville, Woodinville Wine Country, and the Northshore YMCA.
We decided to make a weekend of it and got a room at the Seattle Marriott Redmond which is less than 7 miles from the festival. After the Kid’s Obstacle Challenge (see THIS Facebook post for details) in the morning, we’re headed straight to the Woodinville Fire & Rescue pancake breakfast, followed by the parade at 11am! We look forward to spending the day in Woodinville, with tons of activities for both the kids and adults (p.s. the wine, beer and cider garden is family-friendly!).
If you’re interested in staying on the Eastside, I just checked and the Seattle Marriott Redmond still has a few rooms! You can book HERE (btw they have an outdoor pool!).
And don’t forget – Celebrate Woodinville offers a FREE shuttle. You can find all the details HERE!
I look forward to seeing you at Celebrate Woodinville!
