EVERETT FILM FESTIVAL from Friday, February 16th through Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at the Everett Performing Arts Center in Everett!
In 1997 a group of visionary women banded together in the firm belief that the time had come for Everett and Snohomish County to experience quality international film in a festival setting. With this idea in mind, the Everett Women’s Film Festival was born. The festival was dedicated to highlighting the strength, humor, and creativity of women through provocative and entertaining films. Over the years, the festival broadened its view to embrace not only films primarily crafted by women but also to present movies offering insight into the lives of women from various cultures, times and experiences as they meet the challenges of work, family, aging, and love. With changing times, the name of the festival changed to the Everett Film Festival. Even though the festival name has changed, the Everett Film Festival continues to offer engaging and thought provoking films from around the country and across the globe with a unique look into the lives of women through documentaries, feature films, animations and film shorts.
SPIRIT OF THE WEST COWBOY GATHERING on Friday, February 16th, 2018 through Sunday, February 18th, 2018 in Ellensburg!
Spirit of the West is a volunteer organization dedicated to preserve the “spirit of the cowboy”. Our Stampede program provides the building blocks for our communities’ youth to develop those traits that have defined the “cowboy” throughout history. Words like respect, hard work, kindness and integrity are utilized to provide examples of what is possible for our leaders of tomorrow.
Grab a pair of gloves, pull on your boots, wrap up the kids and enjoy a weekend of music, poetry, food and authentic cowboy culture. Let us take you back to a simpler time when a handshake was a bond and time was something we spent with family and friends.
