Join the Renton Downtown Partnership as it hosts its first in-person event since the pandemic — Plantasia, a houseplant and garden show — on June 26-27.

Experience more than 30 nursery, plant, and floral vendors at the Renton Pavilion Event Center, including Plant Junky Creations, Kent East Hill Nursery, Cugini Florists & Fine Gifts, and others. Unique items and handcrafted wares also will be available for purchase from many local artisans.

Enjoy sample bites from River Valley Cheese; the Brittle, by Pippa’s Preferred; charcuterie by Laura B. Steele; and additional food booths.

There’s even a plant-themed bar with Mark Paschal from Jude’s Old Town in Seattle, where he will craft delightful botanical cocktails. Try one of several plantinis, from Rhu the Day, a specialty rhubarb infused rum drink, to Her Era Begins, a lime juice, pickle brine, and mineral water concoction.

Try plant-inspired beers from local breweries like Four Generals Brewing and Dubtown Brewing Company.

A number of live performances will take center stage from Ascendance Pole & Aerial Arts to local bands and dance troupes from Spotlight Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are available now for timed entry to the event. Admission includes access to vendors and entertainment as well as a reusable tote bag, food and drink ticket, entry for the door prize, and a chance to win additional prizes from a number of participating businesses around the region.
