City of Sunnyside

Come to the Sun

Surrounded by wine country and warmed by 300 days of sunshine each year, Sunnyside is a culturally diverse community situated right in the middle of the Yakima Valley. With thriving wine countries just ten minutes in either direction, Sunnyside is the perfect place to stay when you visit the Yakima Valley. At its core, Sunnyside is a farming community. Asparagus, hops, corn, wheat, peppers, cherries, peaches, mint and grapes all thrive in Sunnyside’s fertile soil. It’s thanks to the efforts of Sunnyside’s farmers and growers that have helped shape the Yakima Valley into an agricultural mecca. Because of the abundance of farms and orchards in the area, fresh fruit and vegetables can be found pretty much everywhere.
