Prairie Days

Party Like Its 1924
Yelm Prairie Days
is an annual summer event that brings the community together for free family fun. The Chamber of Commerce presents a parade down Yelm Avenue. Then the fun continues at Yelm City Park with lots of activities sponsored by local community organizations. Kids of all ages can also enjoy the splash pad and playground equipment or just spread out on the grass. Bring your own picnic basket or buy something special from one of several unique food vendors. Prairie Days is a free community event that’s all about bringing families together to enjoy each other’s company. It makes for a week of fun and if you still have any energy left, don't miss our Yelm All Star Charity Mushball Tournament!
