Rails & Ales
A legendary winter event is right around the corner – Rails & Ales. We will once again close down Orondo Street and bring tons of snow from Mission Ridge to create an epic night of skiing and snowboarding in downtown Wenatchee.
Get ready to dive into the excitement! Before the competition takes center stage, gather at Centennial Park for a thrilling lineup of experiences. Test your skills on skis and snowboards, traipse across the snow in a pair of snowshoes, and embrace the fast-paced thrill of shooting a hockey puck – the park is your playground. And that’s not all – warm up with hot food and beverages from an array of vendors. This is just the beginning of the adventure that awaits you! After the park, head over to Orondo Street to the Rail Jam for an action-packed, high-energy night of thrilling tricks and stellar stunts. As you watch the action unfold, treat your taste buds at a variety of food trucks and charming downtown establishments. And for those who are 21 and above, enjoy a selection of locally crafted beer and cider in our vibrant beer gardens.
The night doesn’t end with the competition, make your way back to Centennial Park, where the excitement continues with the awards presentation and concert. Get ready to groove to the rhythm of the live music from Sour Fuzz, the rock powerhouse hailing from Bellingham. A beer garden will be in a designated audience area so all ages can enjoy the music.
