The deadline for 2017 Festival grants is November 11. We encourage visual and performing artists, arts organizations and arts programs to develop projects, activities, special events and classes that benefit the Fidalgo Island and Guemes Island community. Grant requests where people and programs work cooperatively are encouraged, along with those where people are able to participate in the arts. Please see our Grant Guidelines for more information.
2016 Grants totaled $52,500. Through all of our efforts the Festival gave back over $70,000 this year. Also included are $25,000 raised during our April events for Cultural Arts Programming for the Anacortes School District, Sculpture and Mural projects funded through our Art Dash, and Anacortes Collects placement of artwork at the Anacortes Middle School.
