The City of Woodinville, Greater Woodinville Chamber of Commerce and Woodinville Wine Country have announced the Celebrate Woodinville 2013 summer event series at Wilmot Gateway Park in downtown Woodinville.

An all-day community festival on August 10 will showcase several bands, a Woodinville Farmers Market arts and crafts fair, “Made in Woodinville” exhibitors and children’s activities.
An addition to the summer event series is the 35th annual community parade, along with the popular Basset Bash and annual pancake breakfast to also be held on August 10.
“After 34 years enjoying this wonderful event, we received many requests to move the parade to a more weather-friendly date, so we’re making a change and sincerely hope you will continue to be a part of it,” said Dave Witt, Woodinville Chamber of Commerce executive director.
“This year is also the city’s 20th anniversary of incorporation, so it’s going to be a big celebration,” Witt added.
Feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive about the date change.
The Celebrate Woodinville summer event series features free community events where families, friends and neighbors can gather to enjoy great music, wine and food – all in one place.
Like the 2012 summer concert series, the 2013 events will showcase a variety of high-energy bands playing fun music for all ages and a wine garden with wines from premiere Woodinville Wine Country wineries and tasting rooms.
New this year is a selection of beer from local breweries.Attendees are invited to bring a picnic or sample an array of food options from local restaurants.
The line-up of musicians, wineries, breweries and eateries will be announced over the next few months.
