Why you should apply to the Shoreline Arts Festival Artist Marketplace:

The Shoreline Arts Festival gathers 10,000+ attendees for a summer celebration of the arts and local artists. 

The two-day event is a long-established tradition in this suburban Seattle community.

This diverse Festival features an active Artists Marketplace along with juried art exhibitions, cultural performances, theatrical and literary performances, Hands-On Art, a children’s area, Food Court and much more.

Held at a great venue, the Festival is located on the grounds of the Shoreline Community College, with both indoor and outdoor activities, excellent amenities, and ample parking for attendees.

We’ve tightened up the layout this year and are proud to announce that activities will be surrounding the Artist Marketplace with Hands-on Art moving north of the marketplace. That puts the main stage and food court to the south, hands-on art to the north, and the marketplace right in the middle.
