Bring your family and friends, and celebrate all-things La Conner – from the beauty of the land and landscape, to the artists that make this tiny town well known throughout the Northwest – on Friday and Saturday May 4 & 5.
Activities will spotlight artists, galleries and gardens through delightful storefront window displays and a Flora/Fauna feature exhibit at the Civic Garden Club building. Visitors will be treated to, and able to purchase, artwork from La Conner’s many galleries, plants for their gardens and attend artist demonstrations. As an added benefit, the weekend of May 4 & 5 in La Conner is a busy one with several opportunities to listen to live music, taste wine, and even watch the annual Opening Day Boat Parade.
