Kick-back, relax, and enjoy!

For years, the Edmonds Arts Festival has entertained Festival-goers with a wide variety of music, dance, and theater performances. The main venue for these performances is an outdoor amphitheater which features traditional seating and a large grassy area perfect for sharing a blanket while listening. This large open-air theater will host the top professional, community, and school performers in our region. From rock and roll, to country western, jazz, and classical music, every year the variety and quality of music we present get enthusiastic reviews. A unique aspect of the festival is the spotlight that is focused on the outstanding ensembles and performers from our local schools who not only perform on the amphitheater stage, but also at a more intimate stage in the Anderson Center. We welcome you to come, sit, rest, relax, and enjoy the wonderful performances at the Edmonds Arts Festival.
