Edmonds Arts Festival music: Jazz, classical, rock, Cuban and more

Jun 13, 2019
Ranger and the Re-Arrangers perform at the Edmonds Arts Festival.

The main setting for the Edmonds Center for the Arts musical performers in the Frances Anderson Center’s outdoor amphitheater, which features the modern band shell that was installed in 2017.

It includes that traditional seating and a large grassy area.

The open-air theater will host top professional, community, and school performers, from rock and roll, to pop, alternative, jazz, Americana, and world music.

One aspect of the festival music is its focus on ensembles and performers from local schools who not only perform on the amphitheater stage, but also in a more intimate setting in the Anderson Center and on the Plaza area above the Edmonds Library.
