FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March of the Vegetables: A Celebration of Beauty, Whimsy, and Local Food
Duvall, Washington - The March of the Vegetables—a parade for families, art lovers, and friends-of-farms—is just around the corner! This inaugural community event is on Saturday, March 25th in the city of Duvall, just east of Seattle. All are welcome to join.
The March of the Vegetables celebrates community, art, and local agriculture, gathering residents and visitors together to welcome the vegetables back to the Snoqualmie Valley for another growing season. Farms in the Snoqualmie Valley produce many of the fruits and vegetables found at Seattle-area farmers markets.
The parade will feature colorful and creative produce-inspired sculptures, puppets, and costumes. This event was inspired by the Procession of the Species, an annual, community arts-based Earth Day celebration in Olympia.
Participants are welcome to come early, at 12:30 pm, to create parade art, a vegetable balloon hat, or driftwood noise maker. Once adorned, everyone will gather at 3pm on 1st Ave (between NE Valley St. and Richardson St.), then parade along the streets of Duvall and congregate at Depot Park for live music, a beer garden, planting activities for kids, and more.
The March of the Vegetables is organized by Savor Snoqualmie Valley, a new cooperative effort to celebrate and promote the local food and farms, arts and culture, heritage, outdoor activities, and independent businesses of the Snoqualmie Valley. The recently launched SavorSnoqualmieValley.org website connects residents and visitors to activities, events, and itinerary ideas in the Valley. Savor Snoqualmie Valley is coordinated by the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust in partnership with government, business, and community leaders from across the Snoqualmie Valley.
