Loyalty Days

family vacationsFamily, faith, and freedom— that’s what the Loyalty Days in Long Beach Washington are all about! Gather the family for this two-day celebration during the first Saturday and Sunday during May. Start Saturday with the Coast Guard Display, Children’s Parade, then take a memorable boat ride to watch the Blessing of the Fleet and ending the night with the annual Oyster Feed. On Sunday your kids can participate in the fire trucks rides and then after, watch as the trucks roll through the Grand Parade! Loyalty Days is the longest running commemoration about patriotism and staying together that dates back to 1950!

SummerFest

Kick off summer in style on Memorial Day weekend with the annual Long Beach Washington SummerFest, which takes place every Saturday and Sunday through Labor Day! SummerFest has something for everyone, and the kids can watch magic shows, get their face painted by clowns, or even see mermaids up close! Dance the night away near the mainstage at Veterans’ Field and get down with the live music that’s showcased every weekend! SummerFest is among many Long Beach WA events that will be fun for any age.  

Long Beach Rodeo

Saddle up and get ready to cheer on authentic cowboys and cowgirls during the Long Beach Rodeo July 27-28 at the Long Beach Rodeo Grounds. Mark the rodeo off your list of things to do in Long Beach WA, as you watch horse barrel racing, steer wrestling, bull riding, cattle roping, and more, the rodeo will be the highlight of your family vacations! Start the day with the Cowboy Breakfast bright and early, then bring the family to watch the annual parade through downtown Long Beach before kicking off the rodeo at 1. Adults can refresh in the beer garden, while the kids can compete on barrel stick horses during the family night on Saturday! With so much entertainment, there’s a reason why the rodeo is celebrating it’s 74th year and is one of our top Long Beach WA events!
