Entertainment Guidelines

Jazz Stage

Thank you for your patience as the Anacortes Arts Festival comes back from a six-month closure due to COVID-19. Our staff is excited to be planning for the year and we look forward to updating you on the 2021 Festival as soon as we have additional information. Currently, we are holding off on opening vendor or artist applications until we have further direction from the state regarding restrictions for large community gatherings and events. We will post additional details as soon as we know more.

If you are interested in performing at the 2020 Anacortes Arts Festival, please complete the submission form below.

The Festival Director and separate music committees began reaching out to potential entertainers in February and the entertainment schedules will be complete in May 2019.  We apologize in advance that due to the large number of submissions, we are not able to personally respond to each one.

We also provide Street Performer Guidelines.

There are three stages of entertainment throughout the weekend, you will be contacted about the one that is the best fit to your musical style and available times.

  • Main Stage (all genres of main stream, high-energy music)
  • Port Stage (all genres of music and performing arts)
  • Jazz Stage (jazz of all styles, swing, blue grass)
