The return of Washington’s Methow Arts Fest

Methow Arts Fest

After a two-year break, Methow Arts Fest 2022 made its much-awaited return after a two-year break. It returned with the same creative spirit and array of fun activities for the whole family. The superhero-themed event featured a day of music and performance, an unlimited art booth for kids, local food vendors, the all-time popular pie-eating contest, and a beer garden.

Stage performances

Guests enjoyed live music from scheduled bands like Dusty 45s, Never Come Down Band, and Pipestone Music, with many more artists on the day. Also set to perform was Brittany Walsh, a Guinness Book of World Records and Ripley’s Believe it or Not! contortionist-acrobat record holder. Standing at 7-feet on heels, superhero-yodeler Manuel Horn, also known as the “Austrian Amazon,” brought her diverse talents in yodeling, dancing, acting, and comedy.

Art projects and pie-eating contests

Art booths in the festival included a Costume and Photo Station with superhero capes and Pow! Headbands, watercolor ribbon sticks, painted superhero rocks, fairy houses, and books for younger children. Older kids got to spend time in the tie-dye t-shirt booth and the action figure booth, which were crowd favorites.

An event for all ages, kids aged below 11 spent hours on creative projects offered for free through the support of the Arts Fest’s donors and sponsors. Tickets for kids aged 12-17 were just $5 for an entire day of unlimited creativity.

For extra fun, pie-eating and Hula Hoop contests for different age groups were also set.

Food truck and beer garden

Local food vendors were out in force – Fork Food Truck, Teriyaki Corral, Taco Bahia for gourmet tacos, and Mountain Meals & Catering for hotdogs and brats. A beer garden for adults served Old Schoolhouse Brewery beer on tap, wine, and gin and tonic. It was perfect for those who simply wished to relax and enjoy the festivities of the day. Caffeine fans grabbed a cold brew from Blue Star Coffee Roasters, with the option of adding a shot of Pendleton Whisky for an extra buzz.

The Methow Arts Festival is an annual community event held on the 4th of July, organized by the Methow Arts Alliance. A unique art festival at Twisp River Park, it features live music, hands-on-art booths for children and adults, fun contests, local food, games, and more.
