The Whitefish Arts Festival has delighted festival goers in lovely Northwest Montana for the past 36 years. Many locals come to the show to visit their favorite artists, enjoy the food and entertainment, and visit the Kids’ Corral. Others who are in the area to enjoy a visit to Glacier National Park or to go camping, fishing, or frolicking in an area lake stop by the festival to make a foray back into civilization and enjoy the many delights of Whitefish and the Flathead Valley.
The Whitefish Arts Festival has a long history of drawing top artists and craftspeople from all over the country who work across the mediums from stellar canvas art pieces to top quality jewelry to unique sculpture and metal arts and everything in between. Tired of shopping big box retail for beautiful home accents and boring furniture? Come out to WAF and find a one of a kind piece that you’ll be excited to showcase for years to come. Want to get a jump on your Christmas shopping? Come on out to WAF to pick up a unique gift for a friend of loved one on your list.
Just looking for something fun to do for the afternoon on your stay in Whitefish? Come on down to WAF and enjoy free admission to visit over 100 juried artists in their booths, visit our trailer food court, enjoy some great local music, let the kids or grandkids enjoy a fresh squeezed lemonade while they play at the Kids’ Corral, or pop over to visit the train at the Amtrak station. Have a little more time? Stroll the downtown business district to find the perfect place for dinner tonight or visit the other shops and galleries (www.explorewhitefish.com) in town to complete a downtown tour.
The festival is located at Whitefish’s Depot Park on the corner of Spokane Avenue and Railway Street in the heart of scenic downtown Whitefish.
