Downtown Renton Partnership to host first-ever Plantasia event

The plant and garden themed party is to include vendors, food, drinks, entertainment and prizes.

This weekend the Downtown Renton Partnership along with various sponsors and organizations will hold the first ever Plantasia event.

Plantasia is a household plant and garden themed party at the Renton Pavilion Event Center that will include many vendors, music, drinks, food and raffle prizes.

The two-day event which event organizers like Diane Vandewall have been planning for the whole year has sold out of tickets in anticipation for the event.

Vandewall said Plantasia will feature many different local plant vendors including Kent East Hill Nursery, Urban Earth Nursery, Urban Sprouts and Jade & Co Succulents. It will also include samplings of various locally-crafted plant-based products like balms and candles.

She also said there will be entertainers and performers, including dancers that will perform in the middle of the space.

The space will be decorated In-line with the “garden party” theme, with floral walls and photoesque backgrounds.

Tickets to Plantasia will not only get you in the door, it will also get you a reusable tote bag and a free drink from one of the bartenders or brewers invited to the event.

Dubtown Brewing will be there with a select few of their beers and craft sodas, including the Pfudor hibiscus IPA and their non-alcoholic lavender cream soda with Tahitian vanilla. Four Generals Brewing will also be present with their featured mango pale ale.

In addition to some local Renton breweries, Plantasia will have the folks from Jude’s Old Town with some botanical and floral cocktails as well as local Drum Roll Wine.

Vandewall said the fact the event has already sold out shows that people “are ready to get out” and enjoy the summer and the community after a long-period of inside isolation.
