Celebrate Farms and Pollinators

Sammamish Valley Celebration of Farms and Pollinators

Friday to Sunday, July 17-19, 2020

Thank you to Lisa DeBaets for her artistic donation.

July in the Sammamish Valley brings our seventh 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; enjoy farm inspired art. You’ll find a variety of activities that celebrate summer: learn about local farms; 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.
