About

Sorticulture, Everett's Garden Arts Festival, is a three-day celebration of outdoor living. Sorticulture has become the go-to festival for those seeking handcrafted art for the garden, unique plants from local nurseries, gardening tools and outdoor furniture.

2022 dates

Booth must be open and attended during all Sorticulture hours:

Fri., June 10, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Sat., June 11, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sun., June 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Dates are subject to change.

2022 location - Downtown Everett

In June 2021, Sorticulture was moved to Downtown Everett to meet the state's guidelines at that time. It was always our intention to move the festival back to Legion Park in 2022, however, vendors and customers alike all preferred the new downtown location, therefore, we will continue the event downtown in 2022. 

The downtown location offers the following benefits over Legion Park:

  • Guests do not need to take a shuttle to get to the downtown location; parking is ample and free on the weekends
  • Easier load-in for vendors; easier package pickup for guests 
  • Better accessibility for folks with limited mobility 
  • Close proximity to shopping, dining, attractions and hotels 
  • Guest surveys said "the new location made it easier to buy more items (because they did not have to ride a shuttle)." Most vendors reported all time record sales at 2021's downtown Sorticulture  

2022 Vendor requirements

All vendors are required to have a City of Everett business license. 

Artists: only handcrafted art intended for display in the garden will be considered. Pieces must consist of work handmade by the artist and/or from the creative re-use of materials. 

Makers and craftspeople: we allow some makers and craft vendors into Sorticulture. Products must have a botanical or outdoor-living theme. We do not accept commercial or imported products.

Nurseries: we accept a variety of unusual plants. Plant material must be grown in the Northwest and be suitable for the Northwest climate. Mass-produced, imported garden art cannot be used for display purposes or sold. We are looking to expand our houseplant offerings. 

Tools: we seek fine specialty gardening tools that are made in the USA and not mass-produced.

Educational resources & nonprofits: must be related to outdoor living and the garden.

Food vendors: we accept local food trucks and carts. Food vendors must be self-contained and have all necessary health permits. Vendors must be able to serve all three days.
