2022 Edmonds Art Studio Tour

Edmonds Art Studio Tour will be in-person this year, opening the studios of the artists in Edmonds and Lynnwood to those interested in purchasing handmade works and learning more about each artist’s creative process. Artists are selected to participate in the annual studio tour based on specific criteria, including a connection to the Edmonds community. The public can tour their studios and view demonstrations. Artists can be viewed ahead of time on the website and more information about the event can be found here.

Local actor makes it to the big screen

Lynnwood actor Jon Meggison will be the lead in the upcoming movie Conjuring: The Beyond, premiering on Sept. 13. Meggison spent the last two years working his way up from small projects to commercials to now films. Jon is one to keep an eye on and keep rooting for our locals.

Conjuring: The Beyond will be streaming on most platforms starting Sept. 13. Watch and support Jon’s journey to Hollywood. 

Tickets to CLUE now available

Edmonds’ Phoenix Theatre announces tickets to CLUE: On Stage! are now available. The production brings the classic board game to life. Six guests invited to a dinner party thrown by an anonymous host and given aliases. All are encouragedto keep personal information private when they find that each have become victim to the same blackmailer, the host of the evening. They are presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double, or kill the innocent butler. Join in for an evening full of mystery and laughs. Performances start Oct. 7 and run through Oct. 30, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets to CLUE can be purchased here.
