The 2019 Holiday Festival will be our 40th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more about location, participating artists and special anniversary events happening during the festival.

2019 Festival will be held on November 22 – December 24, 2019, 10am – 7pm, 7 days a week
(Closed Thanksgiving Day and at 3pm on Christmas Eve)

The Holiday Festival of the Arts is a five-week-long indoor arts festival featuring 100 artisans from our region. Aside from vendors selling their wares, the festival boasts live music and art workshops for children on the weekends.

The twofold purpose of the Holiday Festival is to encourage and support the creation and sale of locally produced fine art and crafts while providing an opportunity to connect artists and craftspeople with the general public. This juried festival pursues top quality original arts and crafts and seeks excellence in presentation. Festival proceeds support the visual arts in the region through Allied Arts of Whatcom County’s general and educational programs, community outreach, arts events, gallery shows, and artist demonstrations.

Keep an eye on this page for participating 2019 Holiday Festival Artists and Vendors coming soon!
