30 Sep CANCELLED; Sammamish Valley Giant Pumpkin Weigh-In; Oct. 22, 2022
If you love pumpkins, this event is for you! Every year, the Sammamish Valley farmers compete in an epic contest to grow the biggest pumpkin in their fields, and we know you want to see them in person.
Saturday, October 22nd, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Join the Sammamish Valley Alliance farmers and community members with their pumpkins on the 21 Acres patio (near Farm Market). Costumes are encouraged! Celebrate these giant pumpkins and participate in other fun activities:
-Bring your pumpkin grown from giant seed and enter the competition.
-Cast your vote for which pumpkins are, if not the biggest; the prettiest, ugliest, and those with the most unusual shapes!
-Meet the valley farmers and learn about their farming practices
-Bring your kids and skills for a pumpkin game and crafts.
-Wear your most festive fall costume (though not required!) Plenty of photo opportunities.
-Join our free Farm Walk to learn about regenerative farming practices on the 21 Acres campus
-Purchase organically-grown pumpkins (and other seasonal produce) from the 21 Acres Local Foods Farm Market
-And, go home with a few giant pumpkin seeds to grow your own next year.
We can’t wait to see you at the Sammamish Valley Giant Pumpkin Weigh-in!
