On June 1, 2, and 3, 2018, the museum presents its 33rd annual ArtFest, an Inland Northwest tradition for the entire family. This outdoor festival of art, music, and food is also the unofficial beginning of summer, held on the weekend after Memorial Day.

With historic Browne’s Addition as the back drop, you’ll enjoy 150 juried art vendors presenting paintings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, jewelry and more. Kids can create their own art in our Make it Art Kids Fair. Enjoy a weekend of Northwest bands playing an eclectic mix of jazz, rock, country, reggae, funk, and folk music. And sample fare from some of the city’s favorite food trucks and vendors. After you see all the sights, meet your friends at the Beer Garden where we'll be serving No-Li Brewhouse "Spokane Style Beer" and Townshend Wines.

This event is made possible by the active participation of community members. Volunteering at ArtFest is a wonderful way to join in the fun and support the museum.
