This November weekend has become a popular highlight of Skagit Valley’s holiday season. To celebrate the beginning of the Holiday Season and the Art’s Alive! weekend, the Nursery will be open until 8 p.m. on Friday night, November 3rd. Twinkle lights, lanterns and luminaries will light the walkways as you stroll from the Garden Store to Primrose, and through the courtyard to the greenhouses and Conservatory. In keeping with our yearly tradition, this Friday evening marks the start of our Holiday Open House.
As always, our Primrose gift and antique shop will be adorned from floor to ceiling, sparkling with holiday cheer. For all of us – our guests and our staff alike – opening the doors of Primrose for her holiday unveiling is truly a joyous experience and we hope you can join us for this memorable evening!
Friday will also be an evening of art exploration as we host a wonderful array of visual and culinary artists as part of the Art’s Alive! celebration happening throughout the La Conner area. Hosting our evening event, the La Conner Library Foundation will be selling wine for $5 by the glass (cash or check) to help raise funding for their new location. We will also be serving light refreshments throughout the evening by The Crepe Guy: savory french crepes made from locally resourced ingredients.
Saturday and Sunday, November 4 – 5
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The Holiday Open House and Art’s Alive! celebration continues throughout the weekend. Our Garden Store, with its old Tillinghast seed counters and cubbies, will be dressed in its holiday best. Our Conservatory will be filled with garden antiques, gifts for gardeners, pottery, and holiday trees decorated with rustic and whimsical ornaments. As always, Primrose will be a wonderland of ideas for holiday decorating, gift giving and entertaining. With a theme of peace and wisdom, we hope to create an experience that leaves our guests feeling inspired and uplifted.
Our Art’s Alive! festivities continue throughout the weekend as well. Many of our visual and culinary artists will be doing live demonstrations and selling their creations. The Nursery’s greenhouses and beautiful grounds provide a unique venue for our featured artists. Every artist location will be intimate enough that you can have artful discussions with each artist about their backstory and artistic process. With arts and crafts ranging from painting to jewelry, sculpture to prints, and textiles to chocolates and crepes, this special event provides more artists an opportunity to exhibit their work. Gather your friends and family and please join us for this festive weekend filled with twinkle lights, holiday inspiration, local artists, and abundant good cheer!
