Moments to Remember
Moments to Remember is an all day event and long time local tradition in Downtown Ellensburg, always taking place the Friday after Thanksgiving. Come downtown and enjoy a day full of family friendly activities to kick off the Christmas Season!
Plaid Friday is a national event celebrated each year on the Friday after Thanksgiving as a way to encourage shoppers to support local businesses as they kick off their holiday shopping. Many of our downtown merchants will be thrilled to see you in their shops, all decked out in plaid.
