Celebrate Lavender

Sammamish Valley Celebration of Lavender and the Arts

Friday to Sunday, July 14, 15, and 16, 2017

Thank you to Melissa Jander Fine Art for her artistic donation.

July in the Sammamish Valley brings our fifth annual celebration of Summer!

Celebrate the season by exploring the beautiful Sammamish Valley. Visit farms and businesses to enjoy food and farm demonstrations; take a class; chat with a farmer or a local artisan. You’ll find a variety of activities that celebrate summer: learn about lavender; sample freshly pressed apple cider; taste farm-fresh food and local wine; dig in some soil and take a walk in a peaceful farm field.


Each location will have its own schedule of events during the Valley celebration. All ages are welcome and some activities are free. Click on the links below for more information and individual schedules on what’s happening throughout the weekend at each farm and business.
