Local businesses have always contributed to the of development Moxee. During the 1940s a group of businessmen decided there was a need for a local city park and a community pool. In 1947, the Moxee Commercial Club was formed to help carry out the plans for the development of both the park and pool.
By 1948, the Club decided to help fund the building of the pool by holding a community festival. It was planned for early August after most of the hop work was finished for the season. After several years, the needed funds of approximately $50,000 were raised to complete the community pool.
The festival known as the “Moxee Hop Festival” is still celebrated on the first weekend in August. The Moxee Hop Festival, the park, and the pool are all still enjoyed by the local community and visitors who come and enjoy the facilities, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the community that is still very present to this day.
