Long days, short years

When you’re raising kids, the days are long but the years are short — so you’ve got to plan carefully to hit some of our area's signature annual events while your kids are still young enough to want to go with you (ha). From spotting eagles at their local gathering grounds to quirky festivals to holiday delights, here in the Northwest we know how to celebrate all year round.

To help you make the most of the best once-a-year events, we’ve gathered a bucket list of festivals, happenings, out-of-the-ordinary holidays and more to put on your family calendar.

Remember: Sometimes even the best-laid plans go sideways, so check in on festival dates and venues before dropping by. Page through the months with the arrows above the image. Then, go forth and have fun!
