The Festival at Mt. Si, presented by North Bend Education and Cultural Association (NBECA), has been a community tradition for 75+ years. NBECA's mission is to promote the spirit of North Bend's small town community by providing educational and cultural programs that will preserve the past, celebrate the present, and embrace the future.
Located only 30 minutes east of Seattle, the Festival draws over 20,000 visitors from the Snoqualmie Valley and surrounding areas. The Festival has become one of the most anticipated, fun filled, family events of the summer providing a showcase for local businesses and quality artisans of the northwest.
The Festival Committee would like to invite new and returning vendors to participate in the Festival at Mt. Si as well as thank the many vendors and sponsors who have participated in years past. We value our vendors and the feedback they have given us and continue to improve the Festival for vendors and festival attendees alike.
