“Meet Me in Mill Creek” is the invitation to the community in and around Mill Creek to come and enjoy the two-day festival and street fair for the sixth year in a row. The Mill Creek Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, July 8 and Sunday, July 9.

“We have tried to have the festival in the Mill Creek Town Center for the last two years, and we have finally achieved our goal,” said festival coordinator Linda Martin.

The festival will be located on Main Street between 153rd and 151st streets. The festival will have the Kid’s Korner in a courtyard by House of Bread, arts and crafts, two stages of entertainment, food, non-profit organizations and Fire District 7.

New this year are a wine bistro, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, Corvette Car Show on Saturday, and a 5K and 10K walk on Sunday.

The food court, wine bistro and main stage will be on the top level of the parking lot west of La Palmera.

The Corvette Marque Club of Seattle will bring 50 to 60 vintage and new Corvettes to the festival. They will line Main Street on Saturday only from Starbucks to University Book Store. For event information visit

The Interlaken Trailblazers Volkssport Club is sponsoring a 5K and 10K non-competitive walk on Sunday. The walk begins at the Greater Mill Creek Senior Program office in McCollum Park at 9 a.m. The route follows the North Creek Trail to the festival. The event is open to everyone and no pre-registration is required. For more information, visit

Ron Sarrys, a recreation coordinator for the city of Mill Creek, is organizing a 3-on-3-basketball tournament both days in the L.A. Fitness parking lot. Call 425-745-1891 to enter.
