Roots & Vines 2020!
May 16 @ 3:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Roots & Vines is an annual craft beverage and music festival held on historic Front Street on the 3rd Saturday in May. It is in its 6th year. It features mainly local but some regional beers and wines and local food vendors while bands playing Americana and bluegrass music take the stage for 6 hours. The event unofficially serves as the kick-off to the summer events season, not only for downtown but the entire Yakima community. The entire block of Front Street is blocked off as this is a 21-plus event. Historically, 16 to 18 craft beverage producers pour, showcasing 2 varieties. The event is put on by the Downtown Association of Yakima with mainly volunteers. Crowds in excess of 2,000 attend the event, with the high point reaching 2,500 in 2017.
