The City of Mountlake Terrace works with partnerships to offer several events that celebrate our community. The two most notable events are Tour de Terrace and Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show. These events are planned and carried out by volunteers in Mountlake Terrace and the city provides these organizations with logistical support.
The city's biggest events are National Night Out Against Crime and the Tree Lighting Ceremony. Our award-winning National Night Out is always held on the first Tuesday evening in August. This event would not be possible without the financial support, donated supplies and participation of our community partners. The Tree Lighting Ceremony is done in conjunction with the volunteers of Tour de Terrace who founded this event in 1983.
