Rainier Beach Arts & Music Festival - BAAMFest!

Rainier BAAMFest (Beach Arts & Music Fest) is the FREE signature event of the Rainier Beach Merchants Association and the next generation of community arts celebration in Rainier Beach! Focusing on the rich diversity of cultures and creativity in our midst, a high level of community involvement is at the base of planning and execution of the event which gets bigger and badder every year! This event follows in the footsteps of Art Walk Rainier Beach and Summerfest which were previously produced by Rainier Beach Merchants Association and SEEDArts.

BAAMFest 2017 drew crowds that some estimated were 10,000 Strong. Positive press coverage reached an all-time high for Rainier Beach as a result of this event, and the community is anticipating another excellent event in 2017.

This event is produced through grants as well as fundraising for additional grants, and through private sponsorship.

THIS YEAR BAAMFEST TAKES PLACE ON SATURDAY, JULY 22ND from 11 AM to 7 PM on the Rainier Beach Community Center Plaza.
