Issaquah Events

One of the great things about buying an Issaquah home is you're never too far from some fantastic events. It seems like no matter what time of the year, you'll find something fun to do.

Without a doubt, Salmon Days is one of the biggest events you'll find in the area, so let's get a closer look at this festival, as well as other events not far from your neighborhood.

Issaquah Salmon Days

Salmon Days is actually an international award-winning festival held on the first full weekend of October. It's so large that it draws close to half a million people every year. In addition to celebrating Issaquah's history and culture, many Northwest artisans showcase, and sell, their creations. Plus, there are sporting events like fun runs, bike rides, golf tournaments and fencing competitions.

Of course, no Festival is complete without a grand parade, an assortment of foods of the world or local entertainers and you'll find that too at Salmon Days.
