Edmonds Arts Festival
Each year the Edmonds Arts Festival partners with the Edmonds School District to showcase over 1100 pieces of student art in their Student Art Exhibit. The goal of this popular exhibit is to provide a venue which celebrates the talents and creative expressions of our young artists. Kindergarten through 12th grade students living or attending public or private school within the Edmonds School District boundaries are eligible to apply.
