Everett Memorial Stadium is an outdoor stadium complex in Everett, Washington, primarily used for baseball. Opened 30 years ago in 1984, it is the home field of the Everett AquaSox, a minor league baseball team in the Northwest League. Remodeled in 1998, it currently has a seating capacity of 3,682.[1]

It is also home to the Puget Sound Festival of Bands, an annual marching band competition. The complex includes a football and track stadium, used for the home athletic events for Everett Public Schools, hosting football and soccer games as well as track meets.

While with the Bellingham Mariners in 1987, 17-year-old Ken Griffey Jr. hit his first professional home run here. There is a plaque located where the ball landed outside the park.[2]
