~The Tulips~

For More Information Visit the Official Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Website. They are the experts when it comes to the flowers and the all Tulip Festival events; we handle the FISH!!!

Is there any way to avoid the traffic?

Traffic is very heavy in Skagit County during the month of April as the Tulip Festival is happening. Plan for patience and extra time to reach your destination! Of course weekdays are generally a bit slower than weekends.

~The BBQ~

When did the BBQ Start?

This year will mark our 30th Annual Kiwanis Salmon BBQ held at the Historic Hillcrest Lodge.

Can I help at the BBQ?

We love volunteers! As they say “many hands make light work” and that is definitely the case with our Annual Kiwanis BBQ. Without the help of over 500+ volunteers, including other local Kiwanis groups and community members we would never be able to host this great event year after year!

If you are interested in volunteering at this year’s event please visit our volunteer’s page or contact the BBQ Chair Jarrod Ball at 360-757-3888 or kiwanisbbq@gmail.com

Where do the BBQ proceeds go?

Believe it or not the best part about our Salmon BBQ isn’t actually the fish! The BEST part is that EVERY CENT of this effort is returned to youth and community programs right here in Skagit Valley.

What is Kiwanis?

Mount Vernon Kiwanis Noon Club was founded in 1924 to help serve our community. We invite you to come join us for our hour long luncheon membership meetings every Monday at noon located at the Cottontree Inn & Convention center in Mount Vernon.

Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different-so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person can’t accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.

How Can I Get Involved/Join Your Club?

For information on how to get involved with the Kiwanis Club of Mount Vernon please contact: Club President Tammy Belisle
