Hazel Dell

Hazel Dell has a rich history as a farming community and a “working man’s neighborhood”—a past that is honored today with its sense of pride and heritage.

Hazel Dell’s ties to the farming community date back to the 78th Street Heritage Farm, which operated as a poor farm from the 1870s until the 1940s. Today, the farm is open to visitors, and points of interest include the community gardens, the greenhouses, and a historic cemetery. Future plans for the farm call for an interpretive trail system with signs and exhibits sharing the history of local pioneers and how their lives led to the local agricultural industry’s success.

The pride of longtime Hazel Dell residents and businesses is evidenced each spring during the Parade of Bands. Held annually since 1964, the parade occurs on Armed Forces Day and attracts more than 5,000 participants and 20,000 viewers.

A hot hangout spot, the expansive Brothers Cascadia Brewing, which crafts classic, clean American beers on a 10-barrel system, has indoor and outdoor space with surrounding food carts dishing up delicious food. Find the best Banh Mi sandwiches in town, plus Cajun cuisine, Mighty Bowl favorites, and pizzas slinging from the Hungry Sasquatch.
