Welcome to Rainier Valley and Columbia City!

The Rainier Valley is a vibrant multicultural community located southeast of downtown Seattle Washington. As we say, it's a "Neighborhood of Nations" and we're proud of it. The Valley includes the historic district of Columbia City and immediate neighbors, Genesee, Lakewood, Seward Park, Beacon Hill, and Hillman City, and Mt. Baker. Rainier Beach is found south and the north end of the valley is home to the International District, Dearborn Park and Judkins Park.

There is always a lot going on in the Rainier Valley. This site is a gateway to others who are posting the most recent information on actiities in the valley.

The Southeast District Council is a good place to get connected. See the Department of Neighborhoods District Council contact page for the most recent contact list.

The Rainier Valley Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of local businesses throughout the valley and sponsors our annual Heritage Festival.

The Columbia City Business Association (CCBA), which meets the first Tuesday of every month, continues to grow and sponsors a number of local events, including the fabulous monthly music event, Beatwalk.

For a list of Rainier Valley neighborhood associations, see the city's Neighborhoods on the Net and click on the Southeast district.

The Hillman City Neighborhood Alliance (HCNA)and the business association have an active Yahoo group email/discussion list.
