Free Concert this weekend in Arlington, WA

This weekend is the Stilliguamish Tribe's Annual Festival of the River at River Meadow Park in Arlington. (If you are a local you know its between Granite Falls and Arlington - where the GFHS Cross Country meets are). Gates open at 10:00 AM Saturday and Sunday. Admission is FREE as always.

I have never gone before (even though I live just minutes away!) But I may go on Sunday to see Jake Owen and Jessica Andrews, their songs are quite popular, and if you listen to KMPS 94.1 or the WOLF 100.7 I am sure you have heard their songs before!

The mission of the Festival is to help people who live and work in the Stillaguamish Watershed and surrounding regions understand how their actions can help make their environment cleaner for people, fish, and wildlife.
The Tribe recorded at least 11, 000 attendees at the 2008 Festival of the River. Over 28 states were represented, but the majority of festival-goers were from northern Snohomish County.

The Festival is sponsored by the Stillaguamish Tribe. For more information call Festival Coordinator Franchesca Perez (360) 631-2620. Email Franchesca at
