Mukilteo hosts arts festival by the sea

This could be one of the smallest arts festivals in Washington but what it lacks in size it makes up for in scenery and its sampling of studio-quality art.

The Mukilteo Waterfront Arts Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at historic Lighthouse Park, 609 Front St., Mukilteo, which has majestic views of Possession Sound.

This year there are 43 booths filled with art, music, kids’ activities, food and beverages.

The art booths run the gamut of professionally crafted art including glass, wearable art, painting, photography, jewelry, ceramics, pottery, sculpture and home decor.

The festival attracts thousands of visitors each year. It’s presented by the Mukilteo Arts Guild and co-sponsored by the City of Mukilteo and dedicated to connecting artists from throughout the Puget Sound region with the art-collecting community of Mukilteo.

The festival features free admission, artist demonstrations, live entertainment and activities for kids.

Proceeds benefit the Mukilteo Arts Guild Student Scholarship Fund.
