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.

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.
