February & March in La Conner – Events & Happenings 2018

Looking for a renewing day-trip or overnight excursion? La Conner is just the ticket for a  getaway!  We have lots of fun things to do and see – whether you’re in need of a romantic cozy fireplace and a warm drink, a little shopping, or a walk along our boardwalk in the fresh/crisp air, we’re just the place. 

The snow geese and trumpeter swans make the Skagit Valley their winter home. Plan a day trip or a getaway to view these magnificent birds. Stop by the visitor information center for tips on where you can spot the flock and our website for more on the Birds of Winter Experience!

Take advantage of all the unique activities our community has to offer this time of year and get set for the Annual La Conner Daffodil Festival kicking off February 24th and lasting all March long!
