The Skagit Valley lies in the northwestern corner of the state of Washington, USA. Its defining feature is the Skagit River, which snakes through local communities which include the seat of Skagit County, Mount Vernon, as well as Sedro-Woolley, Concrete, Lyman-Hamilton, and Burlington.

The local newspaper is Skagit Valley Herald.

Between 1967 and 1983, there was a plan by Puget Sound Power and Light Co. to build two nuclear power plants in Skagit Valley, but due to controversy, these plans were shelved.[1][2] During this time folk singer Malvina Reynolds wrote a protest song called Skagit Valley Forever which was recorded on the album Mama Lion [3]

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, April 1st to April 30th, is attended by thousands.[4]
