With just a month left to go, tickets are selling fast for the Edmonds Historical Museum’s gala Heritage Days event. Last year was a sell-out, and with ticket prices set to increase on Oct. 1, now is the time to get yours.
What is Heritage Days, you ask?
It’s a dynamite, fun-filled evening of raffles, auctions, a full dinner with hors d’oevures, beverages, desserts, music and speakers. And it’s all for a great cause, to raise money for the Edmonds Historical Museum to help it continue and grow one of Edmonds premier community assets. Money raised this year will help fund the ongoing renovations to the Museum’s home, Edmonds’ historic 1910 Carnegie Library, restoring this architectural gem to it original glory, and to fund the ongoing work of the museum. As a special treat, look for a display at this year’s event that will reveal the first sneak-peek at the renovation plans for the Museum exterior.
This year’s featured speaker will be Seattle Times food writer and the voice of KPLU’s “Food for Thought”, Nancy Leson. If you love food (and who doesn’t) this is a must-see event. Leson will be introduced by Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling.

“Last year’s event exceeded all our expectations,” said Bill Lambert, president of the Museum Board. “We originally planned on 200 guests, but demand was overwhelming and all tickets sold out. We added three additional tables at the last minute, but there were still people we couldn’t accommodate.”
