The Lynnwood Art of Food and Wine
By Lynnwood Arts Commission | January 13, 2020
Lynnwood, WA – Grab your friends and join us at the Lynnwood Convention Center on Saturday, February 8th from 5-9pm for an evening filled with regional wines and gourmet food tastings, art demonstrations and toe-tapping live music to celebrate and support the arts in Lynnwood at the second annual “Art of Food and Wine” event.
The Lynnwood Arts Commission, in partnership with Lynnwood Parks & Recreation Foundation, Lynnwood Convention Center, and Seattle Uncorked, have expanded this annual community event to support public art projects in the city of Lynnwood for the 2020. Due to last year’s success and feedback, the event will be held on Saturday night (rather than Friday) so you don’t have to rush home from work. With more live music, more artists, and more food tastings as compared to last year, the event will run an hour longer – 5-9pm.
The evening’s entertainment lineup includes live music from “The Ampere Collective,” a spunky quintet that plays fusion, soul and jazz. “Funk n Groove” will be there, too, with their infectious blend of funk, rock and pop. Solo guitarist and songwriter Joshua Blatman will also be in the evening’s entertainment lineup.
Local artists confirmed so far include wood worker Bill Grader, encaustic artist Sharon Grader, pastel and oil artist Janis Graves, oil painter Kathleen Moore and whimsical ceramic sculptor Mike O’Day. They will amaze and inspire you with their art demonstrations!
Foodies will delight at the selection of gourmet bites from local restaurants Anthony’s Seafood Grill, Chef Dane Catering, Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar, Navi’s Catering Kitchen, and the chefs of the Lynnwood Convention Center. More are expected, keep checking the website for updates.
