Sean Straub of Experience Everett is sharing this guide to what's coming up in Everett this month. Look for more updates each month.
Do you hear that sound? From coffee shop to street corner, waterfront to lakefront - it's the sound of music, and it's all around Everett this August. Add a whole lotta art, mix in some craft beer and food trucks, and voilà - you have a good 'ol fashioned art festival. Except in this case, it's anything but old fashioned.
Experience Everett Arts Festival kicks off Wednesday, Aug. 14 and goes through Sunday, Aug. 18. The five-day event is chock-full of things you do not want to miss. Here are the full details.
Fresh Paint celebrates its 18th Annual Festival of Artists at Work at the Port of Everett Marina. Seventy-five artists will be sharing painting, pottery, glass, jewelry, photography and more Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Every artist is in action, plus on-site glassblowing and children's activities. You can also take the ferry to Jetty Island for the Rodland Toyota Float Find. Details: http://bit.ly/freshpaint13

How about some golf for a cause? The South Everett-Mukilteo Rotary Club is hosting a charity golf event, also on Aug. 16, at the Everett Golf and Country Club. Who cares about those back-to-back...to-back double bogies you had on the backside. You just helped fund programs for at-risk kids in the South Everett/Casino Road area. And you got to got to play the super-exlcusive EGCC course. #winning Details here: http://bit.ly/semrgolf
We would be remiss for not mentioning this one, too. The Schack Art Center presents Generations: James Madison Aug. 15 thru Sept. 21. The opening reception is on Aug. 15 from 5-8 p.m. Madison's ability to share traditional Salish and Tlingit NW Coast Native Art through his awe inspiring pieces should not be missed.
