ArtFest Online 2020


The MAC’s ArtFest is a three-day celebration of art and fine craft, and an Inland Northwest tradition for the entire family. This year, it was held online on May 29, 30 and 31 as we stayed home to stay healthy. But you can still visit all the "booths" and experience the programming and music through August.. 

Visit the Artist Gallery.
Listen to our ArtFest playlist of Northwest bands.
Enjoy all three days of featured programming - artist demonstrations, Make-It Art Kids' Projects, and music videos from your favorite ArtFest bands.
