Each year, the Anacortes Arts Festival provides Grants to a wide range of arts education and enrichment programs supporting creativity in our community. Grant Applications are now available on our website at Grant Guidelines.
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. Applications are being accepted through November 14, 2017.
Giving Back Grants totaling $33,040 were given to organizations in our community in 2017. Through all of our efforts, the Festival has given back over $60,000 this year alone. For more information about the Anacortes Arts Festival’s Giving Back program, please visit our Grant Guidelines page.
