Day in the Park Saturday 14th September 2-6pm
Come and have fun in the Park - Free event for all Mount Baker
Come take part in a Mount Baker tradition and join us at the 47th annual Day in the Park Festival at the beautiful Mount Baker Park. This is a one-day event, hosted by the Mount Baker Community Club. This is the Club’s gift of thanks to our wonderful community.
This year’s event features will begin with a kid’s parade (lineup begins at at 1.45pm Franklin High School) as it has since the first Day in the Park event in 1971! For the kids there will also be field games, bouncy houses, face painting, carnival games, tug of war and so much more!
And we didn’t forget about the adults! We’ll have food trucks, a beer garden with games such as cornhole and ladder golf. Later in the afternoon the music will shift to something that both adults and kids can dance to.
Mount Baker’s Day in the Park tradition is one that can be traced back to the very beginning of the Clubhouse and the birth of the Mount Baker neighborhood — neighbors have gathered annually for a picnic in Mount Baker Park since 1909. In 1971 the Clubhouse expanded on the tradition and hosted the first annual Day in the Park festival. That first festival featured field day competitions, and prizes for the craziest hat design and a $1 entry got you ice cream, pop and “better-than-average” draft beer.
The event will run from 2 - 6pm and is free to all. Some carnival games and bouncy house attractions will have a suggested donation. Kids are encouraged to bring their bikes and scooters to the parade. Invite your friends, all are welcome at this event! Want to volunteer to help us run the event?

Day in the Park is one of our long-running, flagship programs. One Saturday, every September, the Mount Baker Community Club hosts a festival for the neighborhood at Mount Baker Park. The day kicks off with a Kids Parade down Mount Baker Boulevard, from Franklin High School, led by our local fire truck. We fill the park with games and fun for the whole family. Theres live music. And, the whole community gathers for a fun day of celebration.
