The Insider’s Guide to the Camano Studio Tour

The Insider’s Guide to the Camano Studio Tour

The Camano Island Studio Tour began today celebrating an impressive 20 YEARS.  The sun is shining and you can feel the excitement in the air (and the increased traffic!).  Here at Discover Stanwood-Camano we want to save you hassle of “next year we will know…” This Insiders Guide to the Camano Studio Tour will guarantee a great visit!


The guide to your adventure visiting artists – download online or pick up a guide at various locations throughout Stanwood and Camano Island.   Here are some tips and suggestions to make your visit a smashing success!


Pacific Northwest 101 – Dress in layers & wear comfortable shoes to explore our beaches & parks while you are here. Map out your route of artists to see – and plan another day to visit, it is a lot to cover in just one day.


Grab a cup of locally roasted coffee at The Camano Island Coffee Roaster and perhaps a scone from the French Bakery inside.  If you are beginning your day near Cama Beach – you will not regret breakfast at the Cama Beach Cafe  (call ahead 360-387-3266 for a reservation!)


Between visiting the art studios stretch your legs at one of our many parks & beaches – Camano Island State Park, Cama Beach State Park, Four Springs Preserve, or Iverson Spit


Now that the coffee has hit and you have stayed hydrated while visiting artists and hiking – you need to use the bathroom! Windermere Real Estate graciously opens all of their locations as the “official restroom” of the Studio Tour!


While you are here you might as well do some shopping! In addition to some of our great vintage stores on the Island you will also be sure to find some great treasures in Historic Stanwood – stop by Laurie’s, Doilies 2 Doorknobs, Ladders, and grab a Mother’s Day bouquet from Island Floral! Speaking of flowers – there are a lot of plant sales on the island during the tour – and the CASA Plant & Bake Sale (Sat. 5/12) will benefit our local animal shelter! 


Looking at all of that beautiful art sure makes you hungry! There are an abundance of options for your lunch or dinner- whether you want to pack a picnic or eat out.  


Camano is proud to have two local wineries – Dusty Cellars and Edward Lynne Cellars – who have extended hours for the Studio Tour (see their ads in the booklet.)  Naked City Brewery is a great option for beer lovers and has the Camano Island signature Easy Island Ale on tap.  


The Camano Island Chamber of Commerce is happy to help you plan your next trip to Camano Island!  Give them a call at 360-629-7136 or visit  While the Studio Art Tour only happens once a year, this area is packed full of fun things to do – make sure to visit to stay up to date on all activities in our area.
