16 Pullman Community Update 

Lentil Festival

August 2017

Welcome to the 29th Annual National Lentil Festival,

brought you by the City of Pullman, Pullman Chamber of Commerce and Washington State University! This year’s festival is bigger and better than ever, and we are excited to share the festivities with legume lovers from across the nation! August 18-19, we will celebrate not only our lentils, but also our Palouse farmers and unique farmlands. We think that is worth celebrating, and we hope you do too! Not only does the festival celebrate the regions agriculture, but it also celebrates the local community, volunteers and other aspects that make the Palouse such a great place to live. From the vendors, to the local honorees recognized on the Walk of Fame, to the local microbrewers, wine and hard cider makers, the festival captures and shares the spirit of the region. We look forward every year to this opportunity to bring the community together. So, won’t you join us August 18-19? There’s lots to do and plenty to see at the 29th Annual National Lentil Festival!

Walk of Fame The Walk of Fame is a commemoration of Pullman’s history and consists of beautiful times inlaid in the sidewalks on the four corners of Kamiaken and Main Street in downtown Pullman. The program was established to honor individuals who have served the Pullman community in a significant way, promoted goodwill, improved the quality of life for Pullman residents or brought acclaim to the air through their contributions. The initial project began in 2003 and included 55 recognitions of Pullman mayors, WSU presidents, distinguished members of the WSU community, distinguished Pullman residents and locally and nationally known figures who participated in sports during their time in Pullman. New inductees are added annually during the National Lentil Festival.
