About the Fremont Arts Council

The Fremont Arts Council engages community to cultivate the spirit of celebration where everyone is an artist.

The Fremont Arts Council (FAC) believes art helps build stronger communities.  Involvement in the FAC is more about a state of mind than a state of geography.  The FAC celebrates life through art by encouraging participation in creating colorful and vibrant celebration art.  Our signature event is the Fremont Solstice Parade which has grown into Seattle’s largest creative art event.  Other events through the year include Petit Troll, May Day, Luminata, Trolloween, and Winter Feast.   We care for public art like the Fremont Troll, and engage everyone year-round in workshops and classes to inspire seasoned and upcoming artists.  Our home base, the Power House, is available year-round to make art and meet with each other.  The FAC is powered by volunteers.

All are welcome to participate in FAC sponsored activities and events. We promote diversity of viewpoints, backgrounds & art forms. The FAC strategic plan framework provides a vision for building a solid foundation for the FAC to support world class art and celebrations and continual improvements to build a supportive and inclusive community culture.

The Committee of the Whole is a seat of creative activity for the organization. The monthly COW meetings provide an opportunity to engage FAC members and others in a discussion, and in the work and activities of the FAC.

The Fremont Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington.
