Open Up to Wonder...

Star-powered performances and world-renowned local talent make Snohomish County your next destination for a cultural experience on your Washington vacation. Our local triple-threat talent, impeccably trained and with accomplished backgrounds, sing, dance and act next to national and international performers who command the headlines. Our visual arts are unmatched. Modern and edgy or native and primitive, theaters, studios and museums alike offer an arts and culture experience you won’t want to miss.

Find murals and sculptures by regional artists as your stroll the waterfront arts community of Edmonds. Tulalip, a federally recognized Indian Reservation is a thriving community rich with history and culture. Everett, surrounded by nearly 50 miles of freshwater and saltwater shores is exploding in the arts scene with top-notch galleries and a state-of-the-art glass blowing studio. Lynnwood offers a peek into the past at Heritage Park, devoted to the early history of the area, and Mukilteo also preserves a piece of our past, a working lighthouse from 1906, overlooking the Puget Sound.

Be inspired as you traverse our communities exploring the art galleries, museums, festivals and venues that call Snohomish County home. Let your imagination take flight as you encounter rhythmic dancing, mystifying art and curious wonders!
