Do You See Everett, WA as The City of Everett Sees Everett?

Everett, Everett Government

If you had to describe Everett to someone what would you say? Recently the City of Everett launched a “design a new logo contest” and here’s how the city described itself. Does your experience match the city’s description?

Get to know us
We are a community with a rich history of entrepreneurs, innovators, risk takers and big thinkers, and those values still drive everything we do today.

For a mid-size city, we’re home to some heavy hitters in the world of global trade and technology. Boeing built its first airplane in Everett in 1967 and is now starting work on the 777X – an airplane that will change the face of aerospace. We have the largest advanced manufacturing hub in the world, and we’re working hard to develop the technology innovators and technicians of the future. We are no stranger to international markets; many of our top 50 companies are foreign-owned.

The Port of Everett and Naval Station Everett anchor our vibrant waterfront. The Port boasts the largest recreational marina on the West Coast and an active deep-water port. The Navy base joined our waterfront in 1994 and its sailors and their families are an important part of our community.

Beyond aerospace and industry, we’ve seen tremendous growth in higher education and health sciences. Providence Regional Medical Center and Everett Clinic are nationally recognized for groundbreaking patient care and health-care solutions. We’re home to three colleges, including Washington State University, one of the nation’s premier research institutions.

And while you probably know about Boeing and some of our other famous residents, we’re also incredibly proud of the arts and music renaissance that’s happening in our downtown and on our waterfront. In the past several years, Everett residents and visitors have had the chance to experience exciting new bands through the Everett Music Initiative, incredible musicals and shows at the Village Theatre and Historic Everett Theatre, and world-class art exhibits and classes at the award-winning Schack Art Center. The XFINITY arena and events center brings a wide range of concerts, traveling shows, conventions and sporting events to our region.

Everett boasts an enviable quality of life, with an extensive park and trail system, natural beauty on all sides and our 19 unique and active neighborhoods. We are family friendly – from the bustling Imagine Children’s Museum to our beloved AquaSox and Silvertips. Every summer is filled with countless ways to enjoy our city – from sandy fun on Jetty Island to the Sorticulture garden arts festival to concerts at the marina to craft beers and food trucks.

Next spring a year-round farmers market will open in the heart of downtown, complete with serveries, a commercial kitchen, and space for local farmers to connect directly with restaurateurs and customers. With exciting new housing and hotels opening all the time, young families and professionals are flocking to our active and walkable city core.

This is an exciting time to be an Everettite.
