Mill Creek Festival Returns for 2021
Posted on 08/10/2021

After a hiatus in 2020, the annual Mill Creek Festival will take place in the same location as in years past, with slight variations in festival hours. Mill Creek Blvd between 164th St SE and 159th Pl SE from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 14, with beer garden hours extending to 9 p.m., and Sunday, August 15, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., beer garden hours to 7 p.m. 

The Mill Creek Chamber of Commerce started the Festival over a decade ago, providing fun for the whole family and raising money to support their scholarship fund, which provides college scholarships for local students. The Festival includes three stages with live entertainment, local art booths, a children's plaza with rides, a beer and wine garden, commercial booths, and a pet plaza. 

On Saturday, live music on the Main Stage will be hosted by KXA Radio host Stitch Mitchell, featuring Whiskey River, Nite Wave, Angry Young Men, The Davanos, and The Machine. On Sunday, emcee Mike Colvin hosts No Rules, Dana Osborn, 80's Daze, and Paperback Writer. For the entire Main Stage lineup, visit
