You’ll find plenty to do in Winthrop/Methow Valley this weekend!
There’s one thing we know how to do in the Methow Valley: gather our community together to celebrate! You won’t find another party like a small town party! You’ll never find a group of people more willing to go all out for a costume party, that’s for certain.
Fourth of July Events
Fourth of July Parade
Parades don’t get any more independent! Celebrated in the Methow Valley since 1891, come join this fun, funky, and friendly event filled with horses, classic cars, live music, community organizations, and the (in?)famous fire truck water hose!
Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, kids get to make unlimited art projects all day for free. In fact kids 11 and under pay no admission whatsoever – a big thanks to our generous sponsors! Youth 12-17 are just $5 and all kids get unlimited art making.
Due to fire danger, the Methow Valley does not allow fireworks of any kind during the summer months, but we sure do love them in the winter!
Fireworks Displays in Winthrop WA
Winthrop WA has some of the best fireworks displays in the state! It truly is a sight to behold. Visitors are astounded by the twenty-minute long display! Almost the entire show seems like the finale of other shows in the state. The show is put on through the generous donations of local businesses and individuals.
We owe a huge thank you to a local pyrotechnical, Doug Mohre, who has gone through extensive licensing and permitting hoops to purchase the fireworks at wholesale and set them off with his trained and qualified team.
The Fireworks Extravaganza is held each year in November, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, as part of our Christmas at the End of the Road festival. The festival includes photos with Santa, horse drawn carriage rides, ice skating with Santa, food trucks, events at the Shafer Museum, and the town lighting.
More Fireworks in Winthrop
That’s not the only fireworks display in Winthrop, either. Sun Mountain Lodge also offers a fantastic fireworks show on New Years Eve! You won’t want to miss it.
