(Hours and dates vary with each location.)

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

Celebrate the spring season by exploring the beautiful Sammamish Valley. Visit farms and businesses to enjoy food and farm demonstrations; take a class; chat with local artisans. You’ll find a variety of activities that celebrate springtime: learn about heirloom veggies; 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.
