Sammamish Valley Celebrates Spring

Message to our Community

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 channels, until we can celebrate safely in person again.

Mark your calendars for these 2021 events:

Sammamish Valley Spring Celebration, Saturday May 8th; Sammamish Valley Celebration of Farms and Pollinators, 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. Stay tuned for details on our 2021 participating farms and businesses.

Spring Celebration

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.
