Cascade Days has its history rooted in the 1930s. It grew from a campaign to build a highway connecting Skagit County to Okanogan County, according to past issues of the Concrete Herald and Skagit Valley Herald. Meetings to promote the road were attended by prominent state and national figures. One of those meetings turned into a celebration with a parade, and the Cascade Days event was born.
In addition to the parade, other activities during Cascade Days are also part of the town’s history. A car show featuring classic vehicles lines Main Street each year to remind us of the days when American automobiles dominated the world market, and Concrete’s mainstay industries of cement manufacturing and logging were still alive.
