Join us THIS WEEKEND!

It’s that time of year again!  The air is crisp, the leaves are beginning to change and the smell of apples and pumpkins fill the air…it can only mean one thing!  It’s time for the 20th Annual Skagit Valley Festival of Family Farms.   Join us this weekend, October 6th and 7th from 10 am- 4pm for food, fun, and farming! Just look for the bright orange flags that all of our participating farms will have out front to welcome you!

Why do we put on the festival, anyway?

A lot of people have been asking recently why we put on the festival every year?  Why do the host farms commit to the many, many hours of meetings and volunteer work that go into making the festival a success?

Here is the Festival’s Mission Statement:

To promote Skagit County agriculture by cultivating the bond between farmers and the community through education and hospitality.

The Festival is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered with Washington State.

That’s right…we’re non-profit and our mission is education! All of the farmers and community members that participate in the Festival do so to share our  passion for local agriculture with the public.  We feel that by offering the general public a free, fun way to see what family farms offer we are creating a network of ambassadors and enthusiasts who will go back and spread the message that family farming plays a vital part in our society.

So come down, have fun and learn something!
