Fun for the Whole Family

Tradition. Community. Togetherness. These are just three of the reasons the VanderMeulens have made Renton River Days a family tradition since moving to Renton in 2007 from Michigan. From the Saturday morning parade featuring bands, drill teams and fire trucks, to lunch and the circus on the lawn, they have found this Renton tradition has something for everyone.

The 2019 Renton River Days is July 26-28.
