Vashon Island Strawberry Festival
What to expect: What could be better than starting the day with an all-you-can-eat Kiwanis pancake breakfast? But before you dive into the syrup, check out the street dances Saturday night featuring the Portage Philharmonic. This weekend-long festival goes well beyond strawberries, with a classic car parade, wine and jazz, the Bill Burby Inspirational 10k/5k Fun Run and at least four music stages to keep you groovin’ all weekend long.
What’s new: Check out “Artists in Action” where artists will demonstrate their craft. There will be artists discussing how they became inspired and glass blowers performing their skills. Crowds can purchase the art and see how it was created all in a new, bigger area.
