SNOHOMISH — The Snohomish Block Party is an annual 2-day festival which is going to take place Aug. 26 and 27 in Historic Downtown Snohomish.
There will be many participating breweries, cider houses, and restaurants, as well as both days full of entertainment including nationally touring artists Sir Mix-A-Lot and Digital Underground and comedian Joel McHale. Organized by Looking Glass Coffee and John L. Scott Snohomish, this event is in hopes to be recurring each year.
“Coming out of the pandemic, we decided that we wanted to throw a big party to blow off steam and bring the community together.” said Laura Page, event coordinator for the Snohomish Block Party and an owner of Looking Glass Coffee.
Friday on First, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. will be a New Orleans, Mardi Gras style celebration on the streets of Snohomish featuring entertainment by Joel McHale, Anna Thompson, Alfredo Ghosts, Tonic Tribe and Nite Wave. Additional entertainment will be provided by roaming magicians, stilt-walkers, and burlesque performers.

The Snohomish Block Party Street Fair, occurring on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. will be located up and down Glen and Union Ave. This afternoon of the Block Party is family-friendly.
There will be a large selection of local artisans, food trucks, and musical performances as well as a beer garden and a Kids’ Zone with lots of child friendly activities. This year, the Kids’ Zone features a bouncy house with other games and activities, along with a Kids Stage with performances by Varsity Rock Music School, Jamtown Live, and young musical artists Ella Molsee, Captain Huckleberry, Angelina Olson and Serious Business. There will be no ticket required for entry to the street fair or any of its events.
