Events

Each year MICA looks forward to the Farmer’s Market. What’s not to like? Fresh vegetables, delicious food, friends, family, and great music. We’ll be there, of course with our local arts organizations. See the calendar for dates.

Art UnCorked features 22 Washington wineries, brewers and cider makers. Each participant will offer tastings of at least two wines. Wines poured will be available for purchase. Complimentary wine bags will be available thanks to Kathryn Lerner/Compass. A percentage of the proceeds are donated to Mercer Island Youth & Family Services and MIHS DECA program.

Artist will be intermixed with the wineries, breweries, cider makers and sponsors in one big area so guests can enjoy tastings and visits the artists’ booths within the same area. Local food will be available for purchase. Live music will be playing, including the MIHS jazz band at the entrance to the event. For a full listing, please visit the ARTISTS page.

Join Seattle Shakespeare Company for another summer of Wooden O Theater with productions of two of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays – Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night. Find a spot in our open-seating amphitheater at Luther Burbank Park, and watch the Bard’s stories come to life in their originally intended setting. All performances are FREE and begin at 7 pm, with a special “doubleheader” performance of both plays beginning at 2 pm on Sunday, August 11.

Twelfth Night | July 11-13 & 18-20; August 8 & 11*
Directed by Mary Machala
One of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, Twelfth Night brims with a lust for life and a longing for love. The intrepid heroine Viola matches wits with vivid and captivating characters who keep sidesplitting antics rolling.

*Please note: The season closes with a special “doubleheader” performance on Sunday, August 11. Wooden O will perform Romeo and Juliet at 2 pm followed by Twelfth Night at 7 pm.

This series is presented by the Mercer Island Arts Council and Mercer Island Parks & Recreation. It is made possible with support from our Title Sponsors Aegis Living Mercer Island and Mercer Island Center for the Arts, as well as 4Culture and Mercer Island Community Fund.
