Now that September is officially upon us, it’s time for pumpkin, spice, and everything nice. So why not trick-or-treat yourself with some Fall fun?
Schack Art Center, an admission-free visual art gallery in downtown Everett, is hosting their annual Schack-toberfest from September 13 to 23. That means 10 days of glass pumpkins, art activities, and one exclusive, adult-only evening of beer and local art.
You already know The Schack for their fascinating art exhibits, but it’s difficult to describe just how smashing this glass pumpkin patch really is. More than 700 unique glass pumpkins of all colors, shapes, and sizes will fill the exhibit—and all of them are handcrafted in the Schack Art Center. You can pick and purchase your favorite pieces (prices range from $36 to $300+). Harvest-themed paintings, pottery, and gifts will also be available.
If feasting your eyes on the main exhibit inspires you, sign up to make your own glass pumpkin in the Schack hot shop. You’ll learn from one of Schack’s talented glass artists, and it’ll only take about 20 minutes. (Hey! Pro tip – these slots fill up quickly. We highly recommend making a reservation).
More of a night owl? Or do you just really, really like beer? From 6 to 9 p.m. on September 20, Schack will be hosting a Pints & Pumpkins event those 21 and older. Wet your whistle with beers from Scuttlebutt and Lazy Boy Brewing while chowing down on bites from Alexa’s Café and Catering, jamming out to live music by Cascade Cascade, watching a glassblowing demonstration by Jesse Kelly (and raffling for a chance to make a giant pumpkin with Jesse!). Tickets include a souvenir Schack pint glass and are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Click here to buy tickets online.
If you can’t make it to Schack-toberfest, there’s always something fun happening at the Schack Art Center. Visit their website to learn more about current exhibits, professional glassblowing, and art education programs for children.
