The Anacortes Arts Festival provides grants to a wide range of arts education and enrichment programs supporting creativity in our community. 2019 Grant applications are available now on our website at Grant Guidelines. Applications are being accepted through November 13, 2018.
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.
In 2018, our Giving Back Grants totaled $22,150. Over $50,000 has been given back to our community this year in grants, public art, cultural education funding for the Anacortes School District and fine art awards.
