2023 Celebrates Gala – Save the Date!

We’re delighted to announce our annual Celebrates gala will be in person this year at The Fremont Foundry on Thursday, September 21st! Join us in ushering in the autumn equinox with an evening of cider-tasting, dinner, desserts, live music, auction, and more!

Date: Thursday, September 21, 2023

Time: 6-10:30pm

Location: The Fremont Foundry, 154 N 35th St, Seattle, WA 98103 (Free street parking available on N 35th st)

Last year’s event featured tastings from Alma Cider, Brownrigg Hard Cider, Republic of Cider, Greenwood Cider Co., Finnriver Farm & Cidery, Seattle Cider Co., Pinball Cider, and more!

Our Celebrates gala allows us to gather as a community and celebrate the volunteers, community partners, orchardists, cider makers, and donors who make our work whole. This year, we are proud to celebrate 15 years of serving the Seattle community, and will be highlighting outstanding partnerships that have helped us save local fruit from food waste while meeting pressing needs in our community. It’ll be a night of good drink, good food, fun games, live music, and good company!

We hope you can join us! To purchase your ticket by September 1st, please visit cityfruit.org/celebrates/. 

All proceeds from the event support our mission to increase sustainable and equitable access to fruit throughout the Seattle community.
