Getting Here & parking

Sorticulture returns to downtown Everett for this year. If you haven't been to downtown Everett before, we think you'll love it! It's hip, historical, tree-lined and features excellent restaurants, bars, coffee shops, stores and so much more. We highly recommend doing some wandering before or after the festival to check out all the awesomeness.

Sorticulture will be on Colby Avenue, between Everett and Pacific avenues

There are many transportation options for people coming from both near and far:

  • Driving - easy access from I-5 and U.S. 2
  • Transit - frequent service nearby from Everett, Community and Sound Transit
  • Biking - with free valet bike parking at Sorticulture 
  • Trains - Amtrak Cascades and Empire Builder 
  • E-Scooters - Bird
  • Ride-hailing - taxis, Uber and Lyft
