Spend Your Labor Day Weekend in Tri-Cities

Just as the summer winds down and before autumn leaves begin to turn golden hues of yellow and orange, the long Labor Day Weekend is your time to celebrate the end of the season and have one last hoorah before fall quickly approaches.

One of the best things about Tri-Cities is that summer sticks around here a little longer than anywhere else in the state. With that seasonal advantage comes a little extra time to enjoy all things to do and celebratory events happening around the area.

Dance Your Way Through the TumbleWeed Music Festival

Featuring over 100 FREE performances, this annual three-day folk festival showcases the talents of local musicians and performers. Hosted along the banks of the Columbia River on Labor Day Weekend, folk fans of all ages are invited to celebrate the end of summer as they sing and dance along to sea chanteys, bluegrass, blues, Celtic music and other spirited acoustic performances along with crafts, food vendors, and workshops.
