People can enjoy a variety of activities that celebrate summer during the Sammamish Celebration of Lavender and the Arts this Friday-Sunday.

“From veggies growing, to birds chirping, to lavender blooming and cooking with lavender, you’ll find many ways to connect to local farms and businesses celebrating the summer season,” reads a press release.

Visit farms and businesses in Woodinville and Redmond throughout the weekend to enjoy food and farm demonstrations, take a class and chat with a farmer or local artisan. Attendees can also learn about lavender, sample freshly pressed apple cider, taste farm-fresh food and local wine dig in some soil and take a walk in a farm field.

Each location will have its own schedule of events during the Valley celebration. All ages are welcome and some activities are free. Participating businesses and organizations include: 21 Acres Center, Agrarian Society, Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop, Molbak’s Garden + Home, Off the Branch Farm (formerly Minea Farm), SAgE Sammamish Valley Student and Incubator Farms, Sammamish Valley Farm, Sammamish Valley Grange, Tonnemaker Valley Farm & Woodinville Farm Stand and Woodinville Heritage Museum.

Visit sammamishvalley.org for more information, a map and links to each farm and business. People can also stop by the Sammamish Valley (SVA) information table off the River Trail from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (with trail access to participating farms) to find out more about activities, and get information on how they can support local agriculture.

Sammamish Valley Celebrations are presented by SVA with support from the King County CSA Program, the Woodinville Weekly and Olympic Nursery, Inc.
