Less than 5 miles from downtown Sumner - the Rhubarb Pie Capital! It’s called the Rhubarb Pie Capital because they really know how to honor rhubarb.The Sumner valley produces amazingly tall and thick rhubarb and they serve up some darn good Rhubarb pie, with the kind of pie crust that’s been handed down from generations of grandmas. If you’re a pie baker, start whipping yours up now for that blue ribbon and enter the Rhubarb Bake-Off at the Sumner’s Rhubarb Days in August. If pie eating is more your style, there’s a contest for that too. It’s also great for a little day outing for wonderful walking, shops and food.
Don’t miss The Buttered Biscuit! One of the best places to grab breakfast in downtown - it’s so popular that there’s often a line waiting to be seated. It’s not hard to see why with their big portions of filling, American comfort food in homey surroundings. No matter what you get off the menu, you must have a piece of their thick, warm cornbread with sweet cream.
The most popular store in town though that out of towners even flock too, is the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse - a proud family owned and operated store. It’s the go-to place for artisan and leather furniture and unique home furnishing.
Downtown Puyallup is 9 miles away. Located in downtown Puyallup is Pioneer Park - 2 acres with a playground, sprayground, an open space to play or relax. Adjacent is the Puyallup Public Library and the Pioneer Park Pavillion. You’ll also discover lots of little shops and plenty of dining options.
Twice a year you can look forward to the Spring and Summer Fair at the Washington State Fairgrounds, or as we like to say, “Do the Puyallup!” The Spring Fair runs April 19-22 - Motorsports Mayhem, attractions, rides, free music and entertainment, kid’s fun and it’s not a fair without some animals! The BIG Washington State Fair typically runs from August 31st - September 23rd.
