Mark your Calendar for the greatest treasure hunt in the Pacific Northwest!  Come to Stanwood and Camano Island to search for unique hand-blown glass treasures by world-renowned glass artists, Mark and Marcus Ellinger.

Dates: February 12 - 21, 2016

How does it work?

Pick up an official Guide Book

The Official Guide Book shows you where to look for Clue Balls.

You can find Guide Books at participating businesses or DOWNLOAD a copy here.

Plastic Clue Balls will be hidden in local businesses and parks during the 10-day event. Bring your friends and family and have a great time exploring Stanwood and Camano Island while on your Quest!

Hint: The Clue Balls will be partially visible without you having to move anything. Sometimes the clue balls are camouflaged to make them even harder to find!

If you find a plastic Clue Ball, congratulations! You are a winner! Inside you'll find instructions on where to pick up your Glass Treasure!

Hint: All participants can Enter the Drawing to win a 2016 Great Northwest Glass Quest ball by completing the entry forms at the back of the Guide Book. Be sure to have the host businesses stamp your entry forms while you are on the Quest!


Be sure to check out Stanwood/Camano's other great Winter Festival for a bonus Quest!

Feb. 27th - Feb. 28th, 2016

With thanks to the Camano Island Chamber of Commerce, the City of Stanwood, the Stanwood Chamber of Commerce and for the generous support of the Snohomish County Tourism Promotion Assistance Program and the Island County Hotel-Motel Tourism Program.

I look forward to the event every year. I may spend an hour or so walking the parks after work, or a day looking in the businesses, but however it is always a fun adventure! Great way to see the sights of Stanwood!

Missed the first year but have done it every year since then. My mother and I have been very lucky and have both find clue balls every year. This is the most fun activity I do every year and it is good to bond with my Mom while hunting for treasure. 10 days and counting please don't ever stop having this glass quest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
