12 Best Things to Do in Snohomish, Washington

GiveBIG was started by the Seattle Foundation in 2011 and transferred to 501 Commons in 2018. Since it is inception, GiveBIG has raised $144 million for nonprofits.

During the GiveBIG statewide fundraising campaign (May 4th & 5th), you can invest in HDSA. When we give, we take a proactive step towards creating the society we want to live in.

Nonprofits do the work that enriches our lives, providing human services, keeping our spirits high with art and creativity, and fighting for equity and social justice. By working together, we can all support this vital work that brings hope, health, and happiness to people and communities across Washington!

Every spring, the excitement for GiveBIG builds through grassroots-based word-of-mouth, social media, an extensive multimedia promotional campaign, and local celebrities and sports teams firing up the community to show their generosity. This year's GiveBIG campaign kicks off April 20, and culminates with 48-hour giving event on May 4-5!

Summer in downtown Snohomish just wouldn't be the same without our iconic and stunning flower baskets! While the Historic Downtown Snohomish Association has once again teamed up with the Snohomish Garden Club and the city to decorate the town with flowers, we need your help. By sponsoring a flower basket, you can help us extend the bright and welcoming feel that flowers bring to the historic district. Are you in?

Commemorate a loved one or simply show your love for your favorite downtown! For your donation of $100, you will help build and maintain one of our amazing flower baskets all summer long. You will also receive a map which indicates the location of your basket so you can visit it as often as you like and share its beauty with your friends and family. As a thank you, we will engrave a short message of your choice onto a commemorative wooden ornament which will be shipped to you in time for the holiday season.

For businesses that wish to sponsor a basket at the $500 level, HDSA will highlight your business as an official sponsor on this page and will give you shout-outs on social media and our monthly newsletter. In addition, if your sponsorship is received before June 1st, your logo will appear on the map that is sent to all Snohomish Flower Basket Sponsors.

Help us keep Snohomish in bloom all summer long!

Snohomish Farmers Market

We would love to have you with us as part of the celebration.

The Snohomish Farmers Market will be celebrating it's 30th Anniversary this year. The market will be back downtown in their favored location, on Cedar Street with the new backdrop of the revitalized Carnegie building.

While the market cannot celebrate in full market fashion, we would love to have members of our steadfast community and businesses join us for a "ringing of the bell" as we kickoff the opening of our 30th year on Thursday, May 6th at 3pm. .
The market has grown exponentially in the last 5-10 years and we are no longer a small stop on Thursdays, but a thriving community of local farmers, processors, food artisans and crafters that produce over a half-million dollars each year - right back into our own community. We also have extensive programs for children and low-income shoppers, helping to provide nutritious food options and incentives for shopping from local farmers.

Discovering Vetucchio (aka, Riverview Wildlife Refuge)

From Tom Pendergast's blog:

"I’m no fan of this pandemic but without it, there would be no Vetucchio. There would be no magical land of early morning fog, no kaleidoscope of birds, no month-long daily binge on blackberries, no daily escape from the routine to this wonderful landscape just down the street from my house."

Volunteering and its surprising benefits!

In its efforts to implement the Main Street approach to organizational structure and management, the HDSA has four committees: Organization, Design, Economic Vitality and Promotion. These four committees form the basis for the Main Street Four-Point Approach which is a time-tested, holistic approach to historic downtown revitalization efforts nationwide.

If you are interested in volunteering in any of these Committees, please reach out to Terry Schuler at
The Snohomish Map and Directory!

This map & directory represents hours of computer research, thank you Google, miles of walking and re=walking our streets, to assure that every building, business, service, ATM and city park was accounted for. Our goal is for the Historic Downtown District visitors to find you, shop, visit and share a meal in our town with the hope that they enjoy their time with us and return often. Please let us know of any corrections.

Such an undertaking! Maps are now in the 3 kiosks on 1st Street! And, look for the QR Code on merchants windows. You can use your smartphone camera to grab the QR Code and you can download a .pdf of the map.
