Upcoming Events


Arts Alive! & Holiday Open House
November 7 & 8
10 am to 4 pm

ArtsAliveLogoWe love being a part of La Conner’s Arts Alive even though we are located in the countryside and not in the town proper. With La Conner’s history of famous artists who moved here because of the ‘light’ in the Pacific Northwest we are fortunate to be able to add this art walk to all the wonderful events associated with our tiny town. And, in keeping with this history, we welcome artists to our Nursery this first weekend in November; Rochelle Anderson; vintage and steampunk jewelry designer, Debra Lacy; fiber and textile artist, and Laura Campbell; vine and rose hip wreath designer. We will also have musicians Laurel Bliss and John Clark with Cajun and bluegrass music plus John and Toni Christianson’s famous combination of just pressed apple cider and homemade molasses cookies.
