Experience four great events in one spectacular weekend! Plans are firming up for what promises to be a fun-packed weekend in Richmond Beach.  Come celebrate what makes the Richmond Beach community special–the arts, the music, the food, the natural beauty, the history and the people!

Due to limited parking at the event sites, off-site parking and shuttle service to all four events will be provided on Saturday, May 11, at Richmond Beach Congregational Church located at 1512 NW 195th. Guests are encouraged to use the shuttle to reduce impact on the neighborhood. Richmond Beach residents are encouraged to walk or carpool, if possible. Visit the website for details or follow the signs which will be posted.

Strawberry Festival

Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA) will be hosting its 14th annual Strawberry Festival at the Richmond Beach Community Park (2201 NW 197th Street) next to the library on Saturday, May 11, from noon to 5:00pm. This event is co-sponsored by the City of Shoreline and the music is supported by a Community Arts Project grant from the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

The sensational music line-up includes:

  • Noon  The Portage Bay Big Band (classic jazz and swing)
  • 1:00 p.m. Scott Lindenmuth Trio (jazz-rock fusion)
  • 2:00 p.m. Ashley Durant and the Delta Beat (blues and boogie woogie)
  • 3:00 p.m. Quarter Past 8 (classic rock)
  • 4:00 p.m. The Wiretappers (good time string band)

Scrumptious food will be offered by local restaurants Flying Dragon Chinese Cuisine, Full Moon Thai Cuisine and Jinju Korean Restaurant. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Strawberry Festival without traditional Strawberry Shortcake served up by RBCA (freshly baked shortcake from Edmonds Bakery and fresh, juicy strawberries smothered in creamy whip cream–yum!).

In addition, there will be a walking tour of historic Richmond Beach provided by Shoreline Historical Museum at 1:00pm (meet in front of the library), community information booths, Shorewood senior photography contest, lots of games and activities for kids and a visit by Shoreline’s finest – the police and fire departments.

Questions or volunteers: Contact Sheri Ashleman, RBCA Events Coordinator, 206-542-9147.
