Thursday Art Walk Edmonds canceled

Based on the recommendations from public health officials to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and for the safety of volunteers and community, the March 19 Art Walk Edmonds has been canceled.

Edmonds Historical Museum is temporarily closed

For the safety of its visitors, volunteers and staff, the Edmonds Historical Museum is now temporarily closed.

“As a community gathering space, we are taking the proactive step to limit person-to-person contact and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our area, by temporarily closing our doors to the public,” said museum director Katie Kelly.

“We will continue to closely monitor this rapidly evolving situation and hope to reopen soon.” Museum staff will still be available to answer questions and inquiries.

You can go to the museum’s website (historicedmonds.org/) for resources and information that may be provided over the phone or through email.

In addition to being the custodian of local history, the Edmonds-South Snohomish County Historical Society and Edmonds Historical Museum is an active member of the community, sponsoring events throughout the year.

These include the annual Scarecrow Festival, the spring and summer Farmers markets and the Halloween Haunted Museum.

Driftwood Players cancels April production

Driftwood Players in Edmonds has canceled its upcoming production of “The Producers,” said managing director Katie Soule.

It was scheduled April 17-May 10 at Wade James Theater on Main Street.

“This decision was not made lightly,” Soule said. “Extreme consideration was given to our actors, creative team, staff, volunteers, patrons, and the Edmonds community. The organization determined that canceling this production is of the utmost necessity as it is our absolute responsibility to reduce the risk to public health to the best of our ability.”

Ticketholders may request a refund of the ticket price by email or by calling 425-774-9600. Patrons are encouraged to consider making a donation of their ticket (501 (c) 3 tax write off applies). Any ticket remaining on accounts after April 17 will automatically be donated.

“We are extraordinarily disappointed for the performers, creative team, and audience who were looking forward to this production,” Soule said. “These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your understanding and support as we navigate through them.”
