Welcome to My Edmonds News sponsor the Edmonds Arts Festival, coming up on Father’s Day weekend, June 19-21, in downtown Edmonds.
The Edmonds Arts Festival is a three-day event that celebrates the arts in our community. During the festival, you can enjoy:

- Three juried art galleries where award-winning work in all media are on display and for purchase
- Performers who provide entertainment at an outdoor amphitheater, including music and dance
- More than 20 food vendors who provide ethnic and healthy food choices along with plenty of traditional fair food options
- An exhibit of more than 1,000 selected pieces of art from students residing within the boundaries of the Edmonds School District
- A “Kids Create” area that provides children with guided art enrichment activities and hands-on experiences, as well as the ever-popular face painting
- The Festival Store, where you can purchase art posters, logo clothing and other Festival memorabilia
The Edmonds Arts Festival Association is a not-for-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers who are passionate about its mission. All profits from the Festival are transferred to the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation that distributes it back into the community in the form of art scholarships and community grants.
