From the Festival web site About page:
On Father’s Day Weekend, over 75,000 art-lovers from the greater King and Snohomish counties and beyond will attend the popular free three-day Edmonds Arts Festival. One of the Pacific Northwest’s oldest and largest arts festivals, we offer a rich array of visual and performing arts and art events in a stunning natural setting.
Art-lovers stroll charming “streets” named after famous painters as they discover and purchase fine art and artisan crafts directly from the talented artists themselves. The Festival showcases the work of nearly 240 carefully selected artist exhibitors, offering oils, watercolors, pastels, drawings, mixed media, photography, sculpture, fiber arts, jewelry, glass, metal, pottery/ceramics, toys, collectibles, and furniture.
The Festival truly has something for everyone, with performing arts, children’s activities, musicians, and storytellers. A wine bar and bistro, situated with a great view of the Puget Sound, offers a respite from shopping. A striking limited-edition Festival poster and a poster created by a student artist is specially produced to commemorate the event and will be on sale to the public, along with Festival logo clothing at the Festival Store.
The Juried Gallery offers a sweeping showcase of art by more than 450 top local and national artists. Cash awards are presented in seven categories: paintings, prints, drawings, photography, artisans’ works, sculpture, and miniatures. All art is for sale.
An exceptional juried Student Art Exhibit unveils the captivating pure expressions of gifted young artists from kindergarten through twelfth grades.
