Leavenworth Tree Lighting Festival

Only two months before the start of Leavenworth’s Tree Lighting Festival. Remember, December is one of the busiest times of the year for Leavenworth Lodging. Tree Lighting weekends are normally booked out a month or two in advance, so book now to ensure your accommodations for your holiday time visit to Washington's Bavarian Village.

With the look and feel of a true Bavarian Village come and enjoy street corner vendors roasting nuts, warm pretzels, coffee, hot chocolate, spiced cider and meats and cheeses from far away places.

Truly a winter wonderland featuring traditional caroling, sledding in the park, dog sled rides,  and of course the all time favorite (and romantic) sleigh rides. A fun time for all. Start a new tradition or bring back an old one, reminisce of past holidays, go for romantic walks in the evening gazing at all the holiday lights and decorations.

*Pamper yourself by staying at Featherwinds Bed and Breakfast where will be served breakfast each morning of your stay with a full hot gourmet breakfast. Visit Featherwinds website at:

Halloween Party for All

Halloween - Trunk or Treat

It's that time of year again, Halloween! This is the 4th annual "Truck or Treat" event; come one - come all. For kids and adults! On Halloween, come to the parking lot of Plain Grocery and Plain Hardware Store. Bring the kids, visit the "trunks" of all the cars and trucks for a safe and sane, well, maybe not "sane" Halloween. The trunks will be loaded with treats for all the kids. This is also a great time to socialize. Adults gathering, kids getting treats, what more could you ask for?

Maybe a cup of hot cider and cookies at Plain Grocery, great conversation from neighbors, or stories by District 9 Firefighters. Ask the Firefighters about their new rescue unit to be delivered earlier this year.

Mick and Trish Lamar are gathering local businesses and firefighters to help the kids have a fun and safe Halloween.

Hope to see you there!

Fire District 9 Auxiliary

Community Pulls Together

Leavenworth Events. Com would like to thank the Chelan County Fire District 9 Auxiliary and volunteer Firefighters. This years (like every years) annual Yard Sale and Bake Sale hosted by the Fire Auxiliary is greatly appreciated beyond words.

The time and effort put into the annual Yard Sale is obviously time consuming and exhausting but very beneficial to the community. The time and energy for the Yard Sale does not just start  a few days before Labor Day weekend. The preparation for this event is on going all year long.

Collecting items for the Yard Sale, organizing and publicizing  the event starts shortly after the previous years yard sale. Donated items are collected all year long from community members and from visitors to our area.

Being a member of the Fire Auxiliary or Fire Department is not just a “job”; it is a commitment to the community and the people who visit our area throughout the year. And it is all volunteer. Countless hours, numerous phone calls, driving back and forth from here to there, the work is endless and can go on and on.

A special thank you goes out to the whole community for their support, to those who participate in supplying items for the Yard Sale and Bake Sale, donations from businesses and donations from purchases made at the Yard Sale and Bake Sale.

Money raised at this and other Auxiliary events goes along way for supporting our local Fire Department and Community.

A very special “tip of the hat”, thank you and respect to the Auxiliary who are often unseen but heroes none the less.

From volunteers supporting their community and  a community supporting their volunteers, we at Leavenworth Events thank you all.
