A Taste Of Edmonds
Friday, August 14th through Sunday, August 16th, fill your weekend with KOMO News at the 33rd Annual A Taste of Edmonds, presented by Edmonds Chamber of Commerce! Join the fun at the Civic Playfield in Edmonds (310 6th Avenue North) with arts and crafts, entertainment, food, activities, and more! Find flavors for every craving from 35 premiere food booths. There is something for the whole family with 70 quality vendors offering original, hand-crafted work including: jewelry, art, photography, clothing, pottery, leather items and many other crafts. Plus, there's a kids' area filled with a rock wall, a giant slide, pony rides, inflatable rides and model hydroplane racing. There are all kinds of ways to party at A Taste of Edmonds. One way is to rock and roll at the Beer Garden, but for the connoisseur of grapes over hops, there is a respite from the ruckus activity in the Beer Garden. Visitors (21 and older, of course) can choose from three wineries that are sure to please. The Wine Garden is close enough to the Main Stage to hear the music, but not so loud that you can't converse with fellow wine enthusiasts. Take the stress out of getting there by taking the FREE shuttle from Edmonds Woodway High School. Admission to the festival is just $4! Kids 12 and under get in free! Visit atasteofedmonds.com for more information. While you're there, stop by the KOMO News tent to enter-to-win dinner at Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse in Everett.
