Four great events--one spectacular weekend
May 11-13

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden (20312 15th Avenue NW) will host its 31st Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 11, to Sunday, May 13. Members will have an exclusive pre-sale opportunity on Thursday, May 10, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Pre-sale items will include a selection of Dan Hinkley plants from Windcliff as well as from Far Reaches Farm. These are not to be missed! Explore a wide selection of hard-to-find plant species at the on-site MsK Rare and Native Plant Nursery. 

Friends of the Richmond Beach Library will be hosting its 51st Arts and Crafts Sale at the Richmond Beach Library (19601 21st Avenue NW) on Saturday, May 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The show features handcrafted items, including jewelry, textiles, ceramics, glass, photography and original art and a raffle. Come meet local artists on Friday, May 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and enjoy light appetizers and quartet music provided by Shorewood High School.

Friends of the Library Book Sale: The Friends’ book sale offers titles for every interest, including fiction, mysteries and thrillers, history, inspirational, cookbooks, gardening, children's books, DVDs and CDs and many more subject areas. A highlight of the sale is the collectible section, featuring rare and unusual titles, along with the Northwest section devoted to local publications. Proceeds from the Special Collections Book Sale go to support programs at the Richmond Beach Library. For 2018, Friends of Richmond Beach Library has allocated over $10,000 to support library services in children, teen and adult programs. This is made possible through the ongoing sale of books donated by the community. Book donations may be dropped off at the Richmond Beach Library.

Richmond Beach Rehab (19235 15th Avenue NW) will be hosting its 9th annual Classic Car Show on Saturday, May 12. Friends, neighbors and car enthusiasts are invited to visit the rehab between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to view one of the best displays of cars of yesteryear around. Enjoy live music by Brian Lee and the Orbiters from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. For more information, contact Lisa Hinman at (206) 546-2666.

Richmond Beach Community Association and the City of Shoreline will be hosting their 19th annual Strawberry Festival at the Richmond Beach Community Park (2201 NW 197th Street) next to the library on Saturday, May 12, from noon to 5:00 p.m. Here is what you have to look forward to:

Children’s’ Parade: Children 8 and under are invited to march in the Children’s Parade to kick off the start of the Strawberry Festival. This year’s theme is “Superheroes.” So grab your cape, throw on your mask and get ready to save the universe! The parade begins at 11:45 a.m. and will make two laps around the sidewalk on the perimeter of the park led by a Shorewood High School drum line. 

Sensational Music:
  • 12:00: The Rat City Brass—Tijuana Brass tribute band, back by popular demand! 
  • 1:45 p.m.: Patti Allen and the Monster Band—The Northwest’s queen of Blues and her classic revue! 
  • 3:30 p.m.: The Disco Cowboys—Outrageous dance party fun! 
Scrumptious Food: A variety of scrumptious food will be offered by local restaurants Flying Dragon Chinese Cuisine, Santa Fe Mexican Grill and Cantina, Streetzeria and the Cabin Tavern. 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!).

Walking tour of historic Richmond Beach: Meet in front of the library at 1:00 p.m. for a tour led by Shoreline Historical Museum.

More fun: Debut of RBCA's Historic Street Signs, Richmond Beach gear for sale, community and business information booths; Shorewood Photography Exhibit; inflatables, carnival games and other activities for kids and displays by Shoreline’s police and fire departments.

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, 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.
