81 years of Trains, Timber, Tradition

August 15 and 16, 2020

Snoqualmie Railroad Days is an annual festival held the third weekend of August in Snoqualmie, WA, just 30 miles east of Seattle.  Originally organized by volunteer firefighters to celebrate the arrival of the town’s first Fire Truck in 1939, Railroad Days celebrates all things Trains, Timber, and Tradition.

Today, Snoqualmie retains a strong connection to its past. Residents and visitors experience this connection while visiting the Historic Downtown Commercial Landmark District, Snoqualmie Falls, and the Northwest Railway Museum whose passenger rail program operates on the same rail line that brought the first regional tourists to the Falls on July, 4 1889.

Snoqualmie Railroad Days is your community festival – one stop for family fun. You won’t want to miss it!

Snoqualmie Railroad Days Festival canceled for 2020:

Snoqualmie Railroad Days has been a part of the Snoqualmie community since 1939, and it will continue as a gathering celebration for the city and its visitors in the future. However, at this time the Snoqualmie Railroad Days Committee and the Northwest Railway Museum are sad to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Snoqualmie Railroad Days Festival (August 15-16) due to the impact of COVID-19. After extensive consultation with festival stakeholders, including committee members and local community leaders, the difficult decision was made to cancel the 2020 festival. Although the festival is canceled, be sure to watch for updates about special virtual events to keep the celebration alive in 2020  at:  www.railroaddays.com and on the Snoqualmie Railroad Days Facebook page!

We look forward to returning to a full festival format in 2021. Many thanks to the Snoqualmie community, sponsors, and volunteers for all of your support.
