Note: Most P-Patch community gardens have a giving garden, a space where gardeners grow food for donation to food banks and feeding programs. These plots are supported by Seattle’s Giving Garden Network, the host and beneficiary of this event.
Mark your calendars and get your tickets for the seventh annual Blues for Food Fest coming up soon at Magnuson Park Amphitheatre & P-Patch, Saturday, August 31, noon-9 pm.
This all-day celebration of good friends, good food, and good music benefits Seattle’s Giving Garden Network which represents dozens of volunteer-run P-Patch giving gardens, community farms, and community fruit tree harvests that donate more than 20 tons of fresh, organic, GMO-free produce every year to local food banks, shelters, and meal programs. Seattle’s Giving Garden Network is supported solely by donations and this fun event.
Great Northwest bands, a beer and wine tent, dancing on the grass, scrumptious food by local vendors, the fabulous Blues for Food Fest pie auction…you can’t beat it for a great time at a great price. And all for such a good cause! Don’t forget to bring your homegrown produce and/or non-perishables to Lettuce Link’s “Beet Hunger” booth.
Blues for Food Fest is the perfect laid-back, community-oriented, bluesy alternative to Bumbershoot. If you’ve never been, it’s time to check it out. There’s free parking, too!
