Story

Chomp! Free Event: Drive-by Truckers, the Not-Its! and more 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. August 20 at Marymoor Park

CHOMP!, King County’s celebration of local food and sustainable living, returns Aug. 20 to Marymoor Park in Redmond with live music by Drive-By Truckers and other activities for all ages. No registration is required for the free daylong event.

Event organizers announced this year’s music lineup:

Activities will start at 10 a.m. and will include a farmers market, food vendors, tree climbing, animals from Dandelion Fuzzies Minifarm in Carnation, a scavenger hunt, and Wilderness Awareness School. 

Bring an old t-shirt or tote and leave with a repurposed CHOMP! souvenir with on-site screen printing. Bring clothing items that need small alternations – a missing button or needing a new zipper or a patch – to the Fix-It Fair.

Since 2015, CHOMP! has supported King County Executive Dow Constantine’s Local Food Initiative by celebrating local farmers, chefs, and restaurants that use locally-sourced food along with community organizations that promote healthy food, sustainability, and social justice.

CHOMP! is made possible by King County Parks and is produced by Artist Home, which produces such events as the successful Timber! Outdoor Music Festival at King County’s Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation, Timbrrr! Winter Festival in Leavenworth, and Doe Bay Fest on Orcas Island. Artist Home is known for integrating unique natural settings into the event experience, and uniting music, community and nature.
