Hopefully most of the rain will come today as the annual Everett Garden Arts Festival gears up for this weekend.

Sorticulture 2022 will take place rain or shine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The official map of vendors and their locations has now been posted.

There is no fee to attend the festival which spans Colby Avenue between Everett Avenue on the north and Pacific Avenue on the south. The intersection of Hewitt and Colby is the hub where you will find the Sunnyside Nursery Garden Stage, beer and wine garden, information booth, bike valet and restrooms. It’s also one of two places where you can pick up your parcels and large items. The other location for package pickup is in Pacific and Colby.

The hours are:

Friday, June 10, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday June 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday, June 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
