The Longview Squirrel Fest is the first of its kind on the West Coast and in the Mount St. Helens region! We’re nuts over this one-day festival in honor or our furry friends. Launching the first Longview Squirrel Fest was a dream of a local group, The idea came from the Sandbaggers who helped build and maintains the Nutty Narrows Bridge on the Civic Circle in Longview, they wanted a fun event that would be nutty enough for everyone from age 2 to 102.
The Civic Circle is transformed into an all day venue of fun, games, and music for the whole family to enjoy.
