A Unique Skagit Valley Community

Located near the entrance of the North Cascades National Park, this tiny Pacific Northwest town makes up for its size with plenty of character, hospitality, natural beauty, and area recreation. Concrete offers a wide range of activities and services to both travelers and those who make their home here. You’ll find easy-access community parks, amazing hiking and camping opportunities and the most stunning mountain scenery in this part of the state.

In the nearby mountains, opportunities range from easy day hikes to challenging climbs. Mount Sauk overlooks our town and you can be at the top within a few hours. Explore our lakes and rivers for fishing, rafting, kayaking and canoeing – Baker Lake, Lake Shannon, and others are just 15-30 minutes from Main Street. 

DAM IT! Author Talk & Book-Signing

Join us Saturday, September 16 at 2:00 as we explore the fascinating history of hydropower in the United States, including in our backyard! Bob Underwood’s new book, Dam It! Electrifying America and Taming Her Waterways offers a riveting account of how dams restructured our landscape, powered our country, and became symbols of Americans’ resourcefulness and mastery over nature. Bob is a gifted storyteller who’ll walk us through natural and manmade disasters, wars, financial wheeling and dealing, and power struggles. Bob’s grandfather, legendary dam builder George Jessup, managed the construction of Lower Baker Dam. The free event takes place in the Concrete Theatre.

Concrete Ghost Walk, October 2023

An event that began in 2006 continues to give visitors thrills and chills while learning about our history. Come travel back in time to the early 1900s, when Concrete was a lawless village of miners, loggers, millhands, and cement plant workers. Where there were more brothels than churches and plenty of hardworking, hard-living characters. Those people are long gone, dead, and forgotten…or are they?
