City of Everett Brings Back Street Tunes


After a hiatus amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Everett has brought back Street Tunes and rolled out eight pianos this week.

The City of Everett brought back Street Tunes after a three-year hiatus amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Street Tunes is an annual interactive art project which brings beautifully decorated pianos to downtown Everett.

The City of Everett partners with business and community partners as host locations for the pianos. “I’m so proud we brought back Street Tunes this year,” said Cassie Franklin, Mayor of the City of Everett. “It’s been such a wonderful summer for our downtown, with many people coming to enjoy our fabulous restaurants, bars, and shops. Pianos just popped out yesterday and music is already filling our streets!”
