Festival To Do List:

Shop for local art at the Artist Marketplace
Peruse paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and pretty much every other kind of art as you saunter through the sunshine and decide which of the masterpieces on offer will grace your mantelpiece. Enrich your home with handmade art, support local artists, and show the world where you stand as a curator of great taste.

Rock out, or take it easy at our Main Stage
Sit back, relax, and be entertained by an array of musical and dance performances spanning a wide range of styles. From Japanese Taiko Drumming to Electric Violin, there’s something for every musical taste. Check out the full line-up.

Enjoy performances and short films at the Community Stage
The indoor Community Stage will offer a variety of performances throughout the weekend. You can participate in an African dance workshop, screen some short films, watch a play, listen to some jazz, and take in many other wonderful local acts. View the full line-up on our website.

View the Juried Art and Photography Exhibitions

Featuring over 200 artworks from regional artists in 2D, 3D, and photography, the Juried Art Exhibit is one of the highlights of the Arts Festival. Over $2000 in cash prizes and merchandise are awarded and winners are announced on June 29 at 10AM on the Main Stage following Youth Art Awards. This year’s jurors are Vincent-Field Photography (Photography) and Sam Scott (2D,3D).

Surround yourself with the creativity of students at the Youth Art Exhibition

Witness the talents of the 200+ Pre-K through 12th grade students who share their artwork in the Shoreline Arts Festival Youth Art Exhibit and vote for your favorite piece to win the People's Choice Award. Awards are given in four different age groups and art for the Shoreline School District’s 2019-20 calendar is also selected from this exhibit of 2D and 3D artworks. This year’s Youth Art Exhibit juror is Matthew Allison.

Get creative at the Hands-On Art stations for children and adults
Visit us under the Hands-On Art tent and get creative- we will explore the theme of color!

Enjoy several projects Under the Rainbow for all ages, such as a colorful Mini Mosaic Masterpiece to hang on the wall, a blooming Flower Collage using oil pastels and colored paper, and a Beautiful Butterfly watercolor. You can also create your own Self Portrait!

And what would the Hands-On Art tent be without the wonderfully squishy Gyotaku Fish Prints? Use real or rubber fish to create a colorful, painted fish to take home.

Tantalize your taste buds at the Food Truck Food Court
Get lunch, dinner, or just a sweet treat at this year’s Arts Festival Food Court. Conveniently located by the Main Stage, the food court is the perfect place to grab lunch, meet your neighbors, and enjoy the festival atmosphere. Ohana BBQ will be back! We’ll also have Pilgrim Coffee Truck on hand for a high-end espresso experience with friendly staff, all off the back of a vintage Ford truck.

Art from the Attic Sale
