Young nature enthusiasts will be thrilled to explore the world of birds, bugs and nature, guided by experts from the Pilchuck Audubon Society, Native Plant Society and Master Gardeners of Snohomish County. Hidden treasures await your discovery with a scavenger hunt through the beautiful gardens of Evergreen Arboretum.

Get ready for a makeover with fantastic face painting with volunteers from the YMCA, lose yourself in the Everett Library puppet show, and let your creativity bloom by participating in birdhouse building with Amy Duncan and the seed planting activity planned by the Everett Garden Club.

A special highlight of Summer Fest is the bilingual interactive music session with the talented guitarist, Marco Cortes. Feel the rhythm, sing along, and celebrate the beauty of cultural diversity through music.
