The walk takes place all over downtown, from Snohomish Iron Works to the newly remodeled Carnegie Library. Attendees will be able to participate in interactive demonstrations of art, such as a drumming circle being held at the gazebo. The art walk consists of 21 stops, many artists will be attending to chat, answer questions, and interact with their fans.
“We ask that participants that are not vaccinated to wear a mask,” Poischbeg said.
