Northwest Naturals Expo
The Northwest Natural Expo is a drive-through experience offered alongside online presentations and a raffle. Attendees can pick up a goody-bag of sponsored health and beauty projects and park to grab soul food from trucks parked at the Renton Pavilion. This year’s theme is Melanin Magic. According to the event page, the Northwest Natural Expo is striving this year to celebrate beauty and wellness in the melanin-rich community and culture of the Pacific Northwest. Register and see specifics on Eventbrite.
