We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s 7th annual CHOMP! event scheduled to take place on Saturday, Aug. 21 at Marymoor Park. With Covid-19 cases increasing across the region due to the highly contagious delta variant, we believe the risk is too high for the event to continue and our highest priority is to protect the health of our community members, performers, vendors, partners, and staff.

Thank you to all who were planning to spend the day with us celebrating local food, farming, sustainable living, and music. We will miss seeing everyone on Saturday and encourage you and your family to still get outside and enjoy one of our many parks in a safe and responsible way.
