Downtown enumclaw

Downtown Enumclaw boasts dozens of independently­owned eateries and specialty food shops. Many of them offer outside dining and locally-sourced ingredients. Food trucks, wineries and breweries are rounding out the culinary experience. In addition, the town hosts two wine walks, a beer festival and a wine and chocolate festival.

In July, the city closes down Cole Street for a weekend and merchants and vendors spill into the roadway with mer­chandise and great deals. In recent years, organizers have added entertainment, kid-friendly activities and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

Enumclaw loves a parade! At least three a year roll down Cole Street – the Stars and Stripes Fourth of July Parade, the Enumclaw High School Homecoming Parade and the Christmas Parade. Grab your spot early, prime curb spaces go fast, especially for the Christmas Parade, which draws hundreds of people downtown.
