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 & 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.

Eligibility: We’re a juried Artists Marketplace. Requirements for artists include:

Work must be handmade. No commercially produced work, kits, or imported goods.
All work must be original and created by or under direction of the artists(s).
Artist(s) must attend the entire Festival.
Items must match type & quality submitted for jurying. No work by non-juried artists.
