Puyallup Rodeo

You won’t want to miss the annual rodeo show at the Washington State Fair on September 11th. Your rodeo matinee ticket will also serve as the entry price into the fair gate, so be sure to browse arts and crafts booths, the annual agrarian displays, livestock judging shows, and all the local ranch-life flavor.

Head out for the last local farmers’ market of the season in Les Grove Park on September 19th from 10 am – 3 pm. Fresh locally harvested produce is available for purchase, and artisans will also have booths with artwork and crafts on display. Be sure to visit for a special Sunday morning occasion!


Soos Creek Botanical Garden Saturday Plant Sales

On Saturday, September 11th from 10 am – 4 pm, SCBG volunteers will be working tables distributing plants and answering questions about the available species for sale. Stop by for a relaxing walk around the meticulously maintained Soos Creek Botanical Garden space and then be sure to pick up a plant for your own garden on the way out!
