Sammamish Valley Alliance (SVA) Celebration events will look a bit different in 2021 due to circumstances surrounding the current pandemic and Covid-19 restrictions. We plan to support our local small farms and businesses through virtual or in-person channels, depending on CDC recommendations for public gatherings at the time of each event.
Mark your calendars for these 2021 events:
Sammamish Valley Spring Celebration, Saturday May 8th and throughout the spring season; Sammamish Valley Summer Celebration, Saturday, July 17th; and, Sammamish Valley Fall Harvest Celebration, Saturday, September 25th. Plan to join our community as we strive to ensure a long-term growing season, bringing peace, health and happiness to all of our friends and neighbors during this unprecedented time.
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more on how you can support local farms, visit 21 Acres for some great information provided by 21 Acres, on what you can do to help. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you this year for our seasonal Celebration events.
Celebrate the spring season this year by stopping by the local farm stands, markets and stores that support local agriculture in our beautiful Sammamish Valley. As we promote our 2021 Spring Celebration virtually this year, not only on Saturday, May 8th, but throughout spring, we encourage the public to purchase local, fresh, pesticide free food that’s grown right in our own neighborhoods. You’ll not only enjoy the springtime beauty as you wander around the Valley, you’ll learn about our environmentally sustainable agriculture community.
Whether you grab some veggies at the farm market, get a jar of honey or jam at your favorite farm store or pick up a gorgeous bouquet from a street side farm stand, your local purchase will impact the economic vitality of the entire Sammamish Valley.
All ages are always welcome but don’t forget your mask when you visit. (And a reminder also that all locations are following strict social distancing requirements.)
