Magnolia author's new book covers past and present of Seattle food
  • When Seattle Opera opened its 105,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art opera center late last year, its leadership hoped to find an ideal nonprofit tenant to share it with. Now, a longtime partner is gearing up to take that space, where both organizations will make beautiful music together.

  • The Seattle Public Library is hosting a planting party for a summer community garden at its Magnolia branch on Sunday, June 16.
  • Seattle Parks and Recreation is offering free weekend beach shuttle service at Discovery Park now through Sept. 1.
  • Seattle Repertory Theatre closes its season with “Tiny Beautiful Things,” a play of heart, hope and hilarity, as seen through the human condition.
  • The Magnolia Historical Society provided a taste of its upcoming book about the neighborhood during the ‘50s and ‘60s at its annual meeting on Tuesday. The event teased the upcoming release of “Magnolia: Memories and Milestones,” with readings from the history book by some of its authors.

  • People showed up for the Magnolia Farmers Market last year, said market manager Molly Burke, and that will pay off this season.
    “The neighborhood’s proving to us that they want the market to go longer, later in the season, and I told them it’s data-driven, so go ahead and come out and shop,” Burke said. “Each year the season has gotten better and better, so we’ve pushed the market out another week.”

  • Downsizing can be hard, especially for a Queen Anne couple that has spent nearly three decades restoring and improving upon their 1902 colonial mansion. As they plan a move to Renton, they’ve put their 10,000-square-foot property on the market with an asking price of $11 million, which is $10.4 million more than what they purchased it for in 1996.

  • The Queen Anne Helpline has held an annual fun run to support its mission of preventing people from entering homelessness since the late ‘80s. This year it has a new name — Run for Home.
  • There will be 21 new vendors coming to the market this year, the first slated for 3-7 p.m. Thursday, May 30. Presenting sponsors are David Rice of Edward Jones, Aegis Living, which will provide a hydration station, and Metropolitan Market, which will provide cooking demos for opening day. The Tangletown String Band will provide live music.
  • The 48th Northwest Folklife Festival will gather more than 5,000 artists and culture bearers over four days at Seattle Center, with this year’s focus on amplifying youth voices. The festival runs May 24-27. 
  • The parents of Elliott Hull are striking back against the cancer that took their son, starting a Bowl-A-Noma nonprofit to raise funds to find a cure for melanoma. The inaugural Bowl-A-Noma bowling tournament hits the lanes from 8-11 a.m. Saturday, May 18, at the West Seattle Bowl, 4505 39th Ave. S.W.

  • Magnolia Lutheran Church asked its congregation to consider donating one article of clothing for every day of Lent. That call to action was spread on Nextdoor with amazing results, said parish administrator Nancy Searle.
  • It took a few decades and a lot of tree saplings, but the latest part of Discovery Park is open for visitors.
    Capehart Forest, which has been under restoration since the early 2000s, is now open to the public with new hiking trails, sidewalks and more. The 30-acre section of the park used to be filled with more than 60 military homes owned by the Navy before it was purchased for $13 million by the City of Seattle in 2010

  • Queen Anne Boy Scout Troop 70 is sponsoring another community blood drive from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at the Queen Anne United Methodist Church, 1606 Fifth Ave. W.
  • This year is the 30th anniversary of the Frances Walton Competition, which will amass some of the best young musicians from around the world in Magnolia.
  • The Magnolia Historical Society will go back in time to the ‘50s and ‘60s with a themed party to celebrate the upcoming release of its third book documenting the neighborhood’s colorful past.
  • Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting free or low-cost Easter egg hunts around Seattle on Saturday, April 20.
