About Alki Arts Fair
Alki Art Fair is a Washington State nonprofit all-volunteer organization that seeks to advance art education and appreciation while encouraging community involvement and cultural diversity for the community’s benefit.
The first Alki Art Fair occurred on Alki Beach in 1997, under the guidance of the Alki Community Center and its advisory council. For 14 consecutive years the Art Fair was supported, sponsored, and operated by Seattle Parks and Recreation, Alki Community Center, Alki Advisory Council, Associated Recreation Council, and of course many volunteers.
In 2010, Seattle Parks and Recreation, both Councils, and Alki Community Center withdrew sponsorship due to budget cuts. However, each group continues to be supportive of the Fair today. So, a group of artists and other community members formed the Alki Art Fair nonprofit organization.
Today, the Fair continues to be produced with the leadership and guidance of its volunteer Board of Directors along with many other active community volunteers.
