In 2022, festival visitors will have the opportunity to visit nearly 200 juried art booths in the field and see award-winning art in the Gallery at the Frances Anderson Center. New this year is a Small Works Marketplace, featuring artworks smaller than 12” x 12” x 12” priced at no more than $225. Student art will also be on display in the Frances Anderson Center, including works by winners of Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation college scholarships. There will be food for hungry art patrons and free live entertainment during Festival hours. The Edmonds Plaza will showcase a variety of artists and artisans who reside or show in Edmonds. Visitors will get to see demonstrations, meet the artists, listen to the music of the Edmonds Plaza Jazz Festival, and let their children enjoy a hands-on art experience. The Edmonds Arts Festival will follow all pandemic safety precautions mandated by state and local authorities. Every artwork purchased at the Festival helps to fund scholarships and grants for community art projects and public art. Free admission and parking. Kids are welcome, but please leave your dog at home.
The Edmonds Arts Festival (EAF) has grown from a small community art fair to one of the most prestigious in the Pacific Northwest, attracting artists from across the nation and Canada. The Festival provides a unique opportunity for patrons to meet artists and purchase their work in a beautiful outdoor setting overlooking Puget Sound. The weekend includes a juried gallery art exhibition and sale of one-of-a-kind art (fine art paintings, sculpture, jewelry, artisan crafts, and more), a hands-on children’s art activity area, live entertainment, and food vendors. Free admission and parking. EAF is run entirely by volunteers and needs your help! If you are free over the weekend, why not take a volunteer shift?
