Auburn’s Mary Olson Farm celebrates 10 years of the Hops & Crops Music and Beer Festival on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The festival, a fall tradition, runs from noon to 6 p.m. at the historic farm, 28728 Green River Road, Kent.

The festival – for those age 21 and over – features more than 30 craft brews and ciders from local breweries. Live music performances showcase the diverse Northwest music scene, headlined by Seattle soulful indie rockers PICKWICK.

More than 900 guests are expected and most bring along camp chairs and blankets so they can sit back and enjoy the music. Leashed dogs are welcome. Free tours of the historic farmhouse are offered, and an educational “Hops Craze” exhibit is on display.

Classic lawn games and food trucks can be found in the orchard, in between 100-year-old apple trees and hops vines.

All proceeds from the event support educational programming at the Mary Olson Farm.

Hops & Crops is proud to be sponsored by Explore Auburn and the Auburn Downtown Association.

Purchase tickets for only $15 before Sept. 6. Admission includes a taster mug and five taster tickets.

Tickets are $20 after Sept. 6 and at the gate.
