Foundation and Festival Opportunities!
The Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to education and the cultural enrichment of our community through the arts. The Foundation gifts more than $65,000 annually in the form of scholarships and grants; over the past 39 years, grants have provided more than $1,000,000 to fund public art installations and large special projects. The Edmonds Arts Festival, held annually in June for more than 60 years, has grown to be one of the most prestigious arts events in the country. Produced entirely by community volunteers, the Festival is the primary fundraiser that allows the Foundation to realize its mission.
