Festival of the River

Each August, the park hosts the Stillaguamish Tribe's Festival of the River and Pow Wow celebrating the many ways a clean, free-flowing river system contributes to the benefit of our community and to our entire natural environment.

The Stillaguamish Festival of the River is a fun way to celebrate summer and the Pacific Northwest environment. Visitors share their experiences and learn from others about water quality, salmon habitat, and the watershed. If you don't know what a watershed is, we'll teach you!

A giant storytelling turtle tent, interpretive salmon habitat tours, arts, and craft vendors, a scrumptious salmon steak barbecue prepared by the Stillaguamish Tribe, and a variety of live music are featured.

Price
  • Free admission.
  • $10 parking per car, per day.
  • No public camping is available this weekend, as the park is full with festival vendors and exhibitors.
