Strawberry Festival

This event is co-sponsored by the Richmond Beach Community Association and the City of Shoreline and supported by a Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council Community Project Grant.

Come meet the local artists while quartet music is provided by our own Shorewood High School.

This event is sponsored by Friends of the Richmond Beach Library.

Car Show

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden will host its 25th Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale and Open House. Held each year since 1987, the Garden’s spring sale features a wide selection of native plants and unusual exotics that are well suited for northwest gardens. Enjoy free family activities and tours of the Garden! See website for shuttle information.

Parking
Due to limited parking at the event sites, off-site parking and shuttle service to all four events will be provided on Saturday, May 12. Visitors are encouraged to use the shuttle to reduce impact on the neighborhood. Richmond Beach residents are encouraged to walk or carpool, if possible. Details will be forthcoming.
