Hi, everyone!
This year's Autism Day will be different. Erick, the owner of Jubilee Farm, has generously stated that the farm will be open for all to gather and picnic at no charge.
I am not in a position to donate the hours needed to create this local, annual tradition, so this year on Sat, Aug 9th, Jubilee Farm will be a place for families to enjoy the beautiful farm as it is.
Let's work towards a new and improved event next year!  Thanks,

Lynne Banki
Founder & Exec Dir of Autism Day WA

We LOVE volunteers! Want to help out? Contact

I remember how difficult it was to go anywhere as a family when my son was younger. There were very few places that could both accommodate his differences as well as provide fun for the whole family. When I did find someplace special, an oasis, I would melt into a relaxation I had not noticed I had been missing. I could let my guard down.

When I first moved to Washington, I was isolated not only by my newcomer status, but also as the parent of a child on the autism spectrum. There were many people who helped me get on my feet; teaching me about services, offering support. I never forgot the help they gave me and decided that when things got easier for me, I would do the same for other families going through similar struggles. Autism Day is a big part of that commitment.

Autism Day is a free, fun-filled event designed for families touched by autism - a chance to relax in a beautiful setting surrounded by people who understand. Various individuals, companies, service providers, and organizations wishing to reach out to the autism community provide free activities with our children in mind. Click to see who's coming this year! The event is spread out with booths, an hour long slip-n-slide event, gazebo performances, adaptive cycles by OutdoorsForAll, and various food vendors. Enjoy the hayrides, farm animals, beautiful flowers, open spaces and camaraderie. See you down on the farm!

Autism Day is supported by advertisers both at the event, through the 250 free event info bags, and on the 550 free event T-shirts. If you would like to learn more about advertising at Autism Day, please click here.
