WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON, April 9, 2014 – In an effort to
stay sweet and beat the heat this year, the Walla Walla Sweet Onion Marketing
Committee has made the decision to move the annual Walla Walla Sweet Onion
Festival up one month. This year’s event (the 30th Anniversary of
the festival) will take place June 21st and 22nd in the
heart of Downtown Walla Walla.

“Since moving the festival downtown to better connect with the
community, we have often had to battle high temperatures in the afternoons
which can be rough on vendors and spectators alike,” mentioned Kathy
Fry-Trommald, Festival Director. “While we will be closer to the start of prime
onion season, with the move to June we think the event will be much more fun
and tolerable for everyone. We do not anticipate any lack of onions available
for festival.”

This year the festival will be centered around the Downtown Farmer’s
Market. Many of the events the community has come to love will be back, in
addition to a number of exciting new things debuting this year. Returning this
year are the Sweet Onion Fun Run, a Walla Walla Sweet Onion Eating Competition,
live kitchen demonstrations by some of the region’s top chefs, the Kids Zone, a
classic car show, a grape stomp competition, food competitions, the onion
beauty pageant, Sweet Onion Restaurant Week, a beer and wine garden, the
festival concert series and more. New this year is a motorcycle poker run, the
Sustainable Living Fair sponsored by the Sustainable Living Center, and a pop
up art show.
