Held Annually on Mother's Day Weekend!
This festival is a home town favorite and draws people from the Grand Coulee Dam Area and the surrounding towns as well. It is a popular event for former residents of the area to return to year after year. The festival is always held on Mother's Day weekend. Activities for the weekend include a prize button raffle drawing with grand prices drawn at 1:00pm on Saturday in the vendor area, two Pro-West Rodeos (6pm Friday evening and 4pm on Saturday), a parade down main street on Saturday (DOWNLOAD PARADE ENTRY FORM HERE) and a carnival located next to the vendor area. Carnival hours of operation are 5pm-9pm on Thursday evening, 3pm-9pm on Friday evening and 11am-9pm on Saturday.
The vendors are located off HWY 155 at North Dam Park between Grand Coulee and Electric City. Vendor set up is on Thursday, May 8th and the vendor hours of operation are on Friday May 9th and Saturday May 10th from 10am-dusk. Tear down must be complete by noon on May 11th. Food vendors are required to pay an additional 10% of their gross festival earnings as well as their booth space expense. These monies are due to the Chamber of Commerce before leaving the festival.
