Sorticulture has returned to downtown Everett once again! The three-day garden and arts festival runs from Friday, June 9th to Sunday, June 11th and will feature 120 local artists, plant nurseries and vendors selling handcrafted art, plants, flowers and locally made outdoor products. With snack vendors, a beer and wine garden and restaurants located all along Colby Avenue, guests can find plenty to see, do and eat. According to the City of Everett website, plant and gardening experts like Ciscoe Morris and others will host workshops on the Sunnyside Garden stage to answer gardeners’ toughest questions.
Sorticulture made the move from Legion Park to downtown Everett in 2022 in response to COVID safety concerns and the change has proven to be popular.
“We are thrilled with the enthusiastic response to our new downtown location,” said Tyler Chism, the City’s placemaking manager. “The central location proves to be highly accessible, resulting in record-breaking sales for artists and an estimated $1.2 million spending boost for our brick-and-mortar businesses.”
The festival hours for each day of Sorticulture are:
- Friday, June 9, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Sunday June 11, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
