Summer Festivals

Summer’s here and the time is right to celebrate our Black Diamond community.

On July 16, we mark the 12th annual Miners Day Festival, which recognizes the city’s coal mining history.

Our own community relations manager Mira Hoke handles outreach for the events, which includes a
chalk art contest, 5K run and vendors and activities. Registration for the run begins at 7:30am and the day wraps up at 4pm.

Black Diamond Labor Days is a fun-filled weekend of local community, music, food and fun, with the best parade in all of King County. This year, the festival takes place September 3, 4 and 5. All parade royalty from past years are welcomed back for what will surely be a procession fit for our local kings and queens.

And don’t forget the Friday Farmers Market, another project of the very busy Mira Hoke.

Located at 25511 Lawson Road, the Farmers Market – supported by Oakpointe Communities – takes place every Friday from June 3 to September 9, from 3pm-7pm.

Booths include music, jewelry, plants, flowers, snacks, gifts, free crafts and of course the freshest produce around. Make it part of your summer traditions.

We’ll see you around town!
