Three Stages Jam Packed for Three Days!

The three stages at the Anacortes Arts Festival are packed with non-stop talent.

We are proud to be partnering with the Manieri Endowment again to bring you a group of amazing jazz musicians.  The ever-popular Nearly Dan is back on Friday night and there are a number of exciting new-to-the-Festival jazz musicians throughout the weekend.  Pearl Django and Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints are back on Saturday afternoon.  And, a band with a name that is so intriguing, that you can’t miss them on Sunday – Herding Cat Octet!

The Main Stage is packed with great music to enjoy from the Hideout Beer Garden.  Friday night features John Van Deusen and Friends and a Tom Petty Tribute Group, Petty Differences.  Saturday is all day rockin’ and country fun with Geoffrey Castle, Chris Eger Band, Knut Bell & the Blue Collars and Award-Winning Country Musician Chance McKinney.  On Sunday, Bellingham favorite Kuinka will close out the Festival with their joyful, fun pop.

Enjoying music on the dock, along Guemes Channel is one of the rare treats that the Festival offers.  Local favorite Mama Dirty Skirt is back on Friday evening, during the Friday Night Art Walk.  We’ve brought another fan favorite, Commander Mojo & the Horns of Discontent back on Saturday to rock the dock.  And, Sunday morning, start your day with Ebb, Slack & Flood.

Find the full schedule for each stage here and plan to spend time at each stage dancing, tapping your toes or clapping your hands!
