Event Summary
BE A PART OF ART IN THE PARK @ WATERLAND!!!

Northwest Art Alliance, the producer of the Best of the Northwest Art & Fine Craft Shows, is thrilled to announce a new event for the summer season in Seattle Southside.  Join us and our friends and partners as we bring art and craft alive in one of the most beautiful parks in the area, Des Moines Beach Park.  In partnership with Destination Des Moines, The Waterland Festival, the City of Des Moines Parks, Recreation and Senior Services Department, and the Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority, there'll be a new destination for art and craft lovers on July 21st and 22nd. 

The Waterland Festival is a beloved SeaFair-sanctioned annual event in the area that goes back to the 1950's.  Over the years, the sponsors have sought to grow the festival in ways that continue to build on this wonderful experience for the community.  This year, sponsors knew it was the right time to bring art and craft to patrons and NWAA is delighted to be the partner to help them do just that.
