Join Allied Arts of Whatcom County as they partner with Historic Fairhaven Association, Port of Bellingham, Bellingham Tourism Bureau, and others for the fifth annual Whatcom Cultural Arts Festival happening March 11-12, 2022.  

This exciting weekend event celebrates the diverse cultures that make Whatcom County so special. This year’s event, primarily located at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal, will showcase art booths featuring local vendors, two days of live music performances, and free art activities for children. 

Participants in the festival come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring a variety of artistic skill, medium, and experience. Visitors can expect to see all sorts of rich cultural expression in the forms of paintings, musical performances, jewelry, food, and more.  

Whatcom County is located right between two large international cities, Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., and it makes our region a melting pot of unique cultural identities. The Whatcom Cultural Arts Festival is a wonderful way to come together to celebrate the differences that make this region home. 

“We will also work with the Fairhaven businesses to develop a roster of activities throughout Historic Fairhaven featuring different cultural activities throughout the weekend,” says Kelly Hart, executive director of Allied Arts of Whatcom County. 

Organizers of the festival are working with local health departments to ensure COVID-19 safety precautions are compliant with regulations.  

Come with your family, friends, and neighbors to see what makes Whatcom County a beautiful place to call home. 355 Harris Ave., Bellingham, 360.383.6470,
