DOWNTOWN MOUNT VERNON is nestled in the lovely Skagit Valley in Washington State. We are just 60 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles south of the Canadian Border. We are thirty minutes from Anacortes and the San Juan Islands in the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Our town is well over 100 years old and was built by the hearty pioneers taming the West. They were mostly loggers of the endless and abundant forests moving here in large numbers in the early 1800′s and building towns along the way.
TODAY our downtown in home of approximately 250 businesses, services, retail stores, the historic Lincoln Theatre, and the Skagit Valley Food Co-op which supports our local and organic farmers. We host the famous Tulip Festival Street Fair each April, Fall Fest in October and an Olde Fashioned Christmas Parade & Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony the first week in December.
