Happening nearby: Taste of Edmonds starts Friday

2014-Seagull-vendorThe Taste of Edmonds, the annual festival hosted by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, will return to the Civic Playfield this weekend for its 32nd anniversary. The festivities will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8 and run through Sunday night.

The Taste is the third largest three-day festival in Washington, featuring 35 food vendors, three stages of entertainment, 70 arts and crafts booths, beer and wine gardens, kids rides and more. It is consistently ranked among the “Top 100 North American Festivals.”

This year, the Taste will be taking on the atmosphere of a carnival, as it shares many of the qualities found in the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration – community, costumes, music, food and fun. Accordingly, the festival’s traditional seagull logo has been given a violet, gold and green jester’s hat to communicate the theme of 2014. See the YouTube commercial for this year’s A Taste of Edmonds here.
