Cool Art in the Garden set for Aug. 4-5

Here’s your chance to meet a multitude of local artists while strolling through the Matson Family Farm.

Art in the Garden, an annual event hosted by Enumclaw’s Arts Alive!, is set for the weekend of Aug. 4 and 5.

The summer tribute to all things artistic will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the first day and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Day 2 of the show. It will again be on the grounds of Matson Family Farm (46620 228th Ave. SE), just outside Enumclaw. Visitors will have the opportunity to stroll the grounds, meet local and regional artists, view their work and make purchases. It is expected more than 30 artists will be attending.

Admission is free and parking is plentiful.

New this year is a check-out policy intended to reduced the time shoppers stand in line. Instead of a single check-out point, each vendor will be taking payments.

Arts Alive! is a nonprofit organization on the Plateau that aims to support and promote art and artists throughout the area. Fundraising events help make the community aware of Arts Alive! as the arts center on the Plateau and support the organization’s scholarship and grant programs.

Additional information is available at or by calling 360-802-6787.
