The Shoreline Arts Festival draws approximately 10,000 visitors over two days. There are two stages at this event, the Main Stage featuring professional performers and the Community Stage featuring local community based groups, nonprofits and artists. Instructions for applying to either stage are below.

Community Groups & Nonprofits

Community Stage

If you or your group would like to be considered for the Community Stage, please fill out the application form below.

Application submission timeline:
April 19, 2019 – Application Deadline.
April 30, 2019 – Acceptance notification date.

The Shoreline Arts Festival supports two types of performers: 1) Professionals or Working Amateurs who want compensation for their time and talents, and 2) school groups, community based groups, nonprofits, and artists who simply want to share their hard work with the public without compensation. The budget for community group performances is extremely limited, with only the occasional small honorarium. If you want payment for your performance, please follow the instructions for professional performers.

To apply, groups should be based in Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, North Seattle, or have a previous relationship with the Arts Council.
