If you're interested in being a delegate, contact a Slow Food board member to get involved with fundraising! (Click here for past events.)

Join us for a day up north!
Explore the history of Northwest cuisine and food landmarks in Seattle with Slow Food Greater Olympia.
On Saturday, September 2 we’ll start at Seattle’s MOHAI museum to see Edible City: A Delicious Journey, during one of its final weekends. Curated by two-time James Beard award winner Rebekah Denn, the exhibition explores food traditions in the area and “serves up the story of how people eat in Seattle, and how urban palates have developed over the years.”
Following our time at the museum, we’ll eat together and close out the day with a visit to Melrose Market. Let’s explore, play together and celebrate food!
This is a pay-your-own-way event. MOHAI tickets are $19.95 for adults. Contact Jenni at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to sign up!
