Founders Day Festival
Medical Lake Founders Day Festival is a tradition dating back to 1926, and became an annual event in the early 1980s when it grew to a five-day event. Re*Imagine Medical Lake took up the mantle in 2016 to help keep the Founders Day fire burning!
Medical Lake has a rich heritage that began with our Native American brothers and sisters who came in peace, setting aside tribal conflicts, to experience the healing waters of Medical Lake. We also remember our founding families, the Hallets and LeFevres, who brought settlers and commerce to the area, including the establishment of varied state institutions, the railroad, and a permanent military presence. We are so proud of our past and are hopeful about our future!
This year’s Founders Day event promises to be better than ever, keeping your favorite events and activities and also adding new ones for an ever-expanding weekend of family-friendly fun for all who attend.
Friday, June 15th, 6:00 – 11:00 pm will feature a Friday Night “Bring the Wall” outdoor barbecue, ice cream, live entertainment and fireworks show to Waterfront Park. This fun-filled evening is also a fundraising event to bring the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Wall to Medical Lake in 2019. Advance tickets will be available soon.
Saturday, June 16th, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm will feature a Parade, the Trailblazer Triathlon, Pick-n-Roll basketball tournament, Booster Club 5-k and Youth Punt/Pass/Kick competition, Disc Dogs frisbee show, vendor booths, street dance, and a surprise or two along the way.
