Just thirty miles northeast of Seattle lies a town with an old soul and a young heart. How many other cities boast a brewery which hosts outdoor movies or a winter lights festival that lasts a whole month? How many other villages stage an annual Basset Bash and Parade (bring your own dog)? By the time spring rolls around along with the All Fool’s Day Celebration, you discover that Woodinville was the Woodland Character you’d been looking for all along.
“Northwest’s Woodland Character” is celebrated in Woodinville, and that shows in the manner in which the housing developments dot the still heavily forested hillsides. However, Woodinville is also about the melding of agriculture and tourism, wineries and breweries, outdoor recreation and preservation of the pristine environment. It is about waterfront parks on the Sammamish River for both recreation and art displays, the golf course and sports fields for organized play, the outdoor Summer Concert Series at DeYoung Park in July and August, one of 11 parks maintained by the city, and at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Vineyard, the Washington State’s oldest winery surrounded by 105 wooded acres and unique craftsman-style architecture. It is knowing your town has over 11,000 people and yet enjoying a quiet hike on a wooded trail without seeing or hearing anyone but yourself. Visit Woodinville Info Page HERE!
