Open up to dedication. Located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Snohomish County, Washington, is 15 miles north of Seattle. Bordered on the west by Puget Sound and on the east by the Cascade Mountains, Snohomish County offers the perfect backdrop for your sporting events.

Snohomish County provides a variety of opportunities for sports event planners to bring their event here. Snohomish County Sports Commission will help connect you with funding opportunities, event organization, hotel accommodations and venues to make your event successful.

Snohomish County’s event venues, ranging from snow and ice to lakes and rivers to playfields and sports courts, open up the opportunity to attract a wide variety of sports events. In 2018, we will host the Northwest Athletic Conference Men & Women Basketball Championships, Spartan Super Race – U.S. National Series, USA Triathlon Youth & Junior Elite Race Series and Skate America.

Discover Snohomish County’s miles of shoreline, peaceful lakes and streams, natural scenic beauty and plenty of outdoor adventure, such as river rafting and float trips, water skiing, fishing, hiking, biking and hot air ballooning.

The county is a treasure trove for shoppers, as shoppers shop for the latest in fashion trends at the malls and outlets or stroll through streets of antique shops in the City of Snohomish.
