MAC ArtFest 2024

May 31-June 2
on the MAC Campus

The 39th Annual ArtFest is a three-day celebration of art and fine craft and an Inland Northwest tradition for the entire family.

MAC ArtFest is Spokane’s premiere juried art and fine craft fair and has been connecting our community to the world of art since 1985.

ArtFest is committed to highlighting handmade excellence and supporting artists in our region and beyond. The festival atmosphere is created with the addition of live music, food trucks, a beer garden, and Make-it-Art Kids’ Projects. It is presented and produced by The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, (MAC) a nonprofit organization. Proceeds from the event support art education, exhibitions, and community programming for youth and adults. All revenue from art sales goes directly to the artists. 

Located on the MAC campus, the ArtFest grounds offer a beautiful, parklike backdrop with all the charm of the Browne’s Addition historic neighborhood and easy access to the MAC's amenities.
