2023 Celebrate HARVEST
Summer Blast kicks off Sunflower Days @ Maris Farms:
Celebrate HARVEST wants to create the Plateau’s premier SUMMER themed event for all ages – SUMMER BLAST – opening weekend of Sunflower Days @ Maris Farms! The Sunflower Days kick-off event will feature a variety of Sunflowers and Zinnias, fabulously flavorful food & beverages, two competitive cornhole tournaments, a classic car show, a craft vendor maker’s market, numerous farm activities and a spectacularly produced light show coordinated to music to end the evening.
There is no other event like this on the Plateau, and we believe it will become one of the summertime’s most popular destination events. It will also further separate Maris Farms as a leader in agritainment events in the northwest. And, it will support a local nonprofit, Celebrate HARVEST, in raising funds for its mission of inspiring and financially supporting the agritainment industry.
The 2nd annual NW Cornhole Classic – presented by the Celebrate HARVEST, 253Cornhole, Puget Sound Cornhole and Rogue Bags – will offer at least $3,500 in prize money during tournaments on Saturday, Aug. 12th (starting at 1 pm) and Sunday, August 13th (starting at 2 pm). There will be upper and lower level competitive divisions sporting prize money for the top 3 in each division on Aug. 12th and a Super Switch formatted tournament on Aug. 13th offering prize money to the top 5. Registration will be offered online until 30 minutes before play begins each day. Online registration is $35 per player per day; Onsite registration is $45 per player. Cornhole registration includes farm admission for each registered player. If the registrant has family accompanying them, they can purchase General or Child admission for them online at the same time they register and get 20% off their online admission (admission prices automatically reduce by 20% after cornhole registration is completed).
The Classic Car Show is on Saturday by invite only and will only have 55 spots available. Anyone interested may contact Richard Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or Steve Templeman at email@example.com.
And the evening-ending light show extravaganza is a spectacular display of more than 35,000 LED lights coordinated to several popular songs for a 15-minute sensory overload that is sure to delight and send guests home on a high note!
