What was life like in the early days of the Snoqualmie Valley? The Heritage Festival at Duvall’s Historical Dougherty Farmstead will be a day of activities, demonstrations, and music from the early 1900’s. There will be fun for all ages with butter churning, hand-crank laundry tub, antique tractors, blacksmithing, and more! The historical farmhouse, bunkhouse, and milk house will all be open. A quilt turning will feature needle work from the era.
The event is free for all ages and presented by The Duvall Historical Society and the Duvall Cultural Commission.
Saturday 9/6 Art & Wine Walk
DCC’s Art & Wine Walk is co-produced by Cascade Community Theatre and will include work by 14 local and regional artists, an exhibit of local artist Mike Ball’s work, a demonstration by artist Dan Cautrell, and a Sandblast slideshow. Live music will be performed at four locations and five wineries will be featured.
Take a stroll through downtown Duvall, discover local businesses, Duvall ambiance, and culture! Art can be viewed at no charge and can be purchased directly from the artists. Wine tasting tickets will be sold at Duvall Flowers and Gifts and Coldwell Banker Bain, and a wine store will be open at the Duvall Visitor Center for the night. Proceeds to benefit Friends of DCC

SummerStage Moves to the Trail Side of McCormick Park!
After many requests from the community, and with much contemplation, we are moving SummerStage to the trail (south) side of McCormick Park for the remainder of the season. While we will no longer be adjacent to the beach, we will also no longer have to battle the sand which is very damaging to the sound equipment. You should still be able to hear the music at the beach. There will be plenty of room to spread out and personal canopies can be set up at the outer edges of the concert area. Please continue to keep the following in mind:
- No overnight camping
- Only authorized production vehicles are allowed in the park
- Dogs must be on a leash
Let us know how you like it! We will have surveys at the show. SummerStage is the City of Duvall Cultural Commission’s free summer concert series and Duvall’s premier music event. The family friendly show begins at 7:00 pm. Click here for the SummerStage lineup
