Celebrate the city’s agricultural past at the 40th annual Kelsey Creek Farm Fair on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 11 a.m. through 4 p.m.
Festivities will include hands-on pioneer activities, animal viewing, scarecrows, pedal tractors, train display and demonstration, tractor-pulled wagon rides by Northwest Vintage Tractor Club, food trucks, and a pumpkin patch.
Free shuttles will run from Bannerwood Sports Park, at 1790 Richards Road, and the Wilburton Park and Ride, at 720 114th Ave. SE, to Kelsey Creek Farm, 410 130th Pl. SE. The last shuttle will leave the farm at 4:15 p.m.
In 1921, the site of the current Kelsey Creek Park was a farm called Twin Valley Dairy that produced milk, cream and butter. Nearly 50 years later, the city purchased part of the farm that then became a park.
Kelsey Creek Park features 150 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands in the heart of Bellevue.
The event organizers said no ATM will be on site. Some activities have a charge. Pets are also not allowed in the barnyard area.
