The Grapeview Water & Art Festival Is Back!
Saturday, July 23, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Fair Harbor Marina
Come One, Come All! After a two-year COVID hiatus, the 27th annual Grapeview Water & Art Festival, presented by the Grapeview Community Association (GCA), is back and will be held Saturday, July 23, from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the picturesque Fair Harbor Marina and Port of Grapeview, located on the Grapeview Loop Rd. off Route 3 between Belfair and Shelton, WA.
The Water & Art Festival is an ‘old-fashion’ community celebration, where all ages can enjoy good food -- clams, corn-on-the-cob, hamburgers and hot dogs, and homemade cobblers, as well as live music by JP and the OK Rhythm Boys, children’s crafts and wooden boat-making, face painting, ‘hole-in-one’ golf, a fishing derby, and shopping for uniquely designed, quality arts and crafts from over NW artists.
Hosted by the Fair Harbor Marina and Port of Grapeview, this popular event typically attracts between 1,000 and 1200 guests, and proceeds benefit Mason County through youth scholarships and donations to local schools and non-profit organizations.

So, mark your calendar for July 23 and invite your family and friends!
A very special thank you to our hosts and sponsors!
The Grapeview Water & Art Festival is very grateful to both the Fair Harbor Marina and the Port of Grapeview who graciously host this event year after year. And, to Taylor Shellfish Farms who generously donate the clams every year, Mason County Transit who are providing a van and driver free of charge to accommodate remote parking, and to the Grapeview – Mason County Fire Department District #3 Station 2 for allowing is to use their property for remote parking. Without the support of these businesses and local government agencies, this popular summer Festival would not be possible.
Below are two of the many highlights for this year -- The annual Festival Poster, curated and executed by Mary Baker and Phil Stewart, and The Festival T-shirt and commemorative product design by Mary Larson.
2022 Festival Poster & Artist
Phil and Mary have recruited, artist Carol Boudreau, a native Oregonian, with a deep love of Pacific Northwest landscapes. After teaching elementary school for 30 years, Carol turned her talents to photography and then to painting, using watercolors to capture the beauty, luminosity, and spirit of the PNW. Carol’s goal is to enable viewers to have an emotional connection with something familiar in nature.
The poster will be available for early purchase (cash or checks only) at the July 8th GCA event and at the festival – $25 unframed and $65 framed. Carol will also be one of the 41 artists exhibiting her work at the Art portion of the festival. So, check out her booth.
2022 Festival T-Shirt Design & Artist
Again, this year, GCA member Mary Larson, has created this beautiful design, which will go on the 2022 commemorative T-Shirt. Also, for sale will be hats, vests, sweatshirts, and new this year canvass shopping bags. These products will be available for early purchase (cash or check only) at the July 8th .
