Hopefully most of the rain will happen today as Everett’s annual garden arts festival gets set for this weekend.

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

There is no charge to attend the festival which covers Colby Avenue between Everett Avenue to the north and Pacific Avenue on the south. The intersection if Hewitt and Colby is the center where you’ll find the Sunnyside Nursery Garden Stage, beer and wine garden, information booth, bike valet and restrooms. It’s also one of two spots where you can pick up your packages and large items. The other location for package pickup is at Pacific and Colby.

Hours are:

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