  • What is MAC Fest?
    SCAAC has been putting on arts events and providing education in the community for several years. We want to celebrate that success with fun art stuff for everyone…and introduce ourselves to anyone that doesn’t know us yet. We’ll kick off MAC Fest with a Block Party on Saturday, September 14th on the brick road...right in front of the future Meyer Art Center. For the following 9 days, we’ll offer arts education, events and exhibits for all ages.
  • Why do an arts fest?
    Because they're fun! Community events gather people together to connect over a shared experience. Our mission is to build community through the arts...so...just makes sense! Attending MAC Fest events will support SCAAC's programs. In lieu of a one-night gala as a fundraiser, we are welcoming the entire community (& beyond) to experience all that SCAAC has to offer.
  • Where is it?
    SCAAC will have an info desk and host some events at the Sons of Norway, Fritjov Lodge in west Stanwood. Bonus: the Lodge is located just a few doors down from the future art center! We are partnering with artists, businesses and other organizations to include a wide variety of art events and education in MAC Fest. Event and class schedules will be posted online and around town as we confirm them.

  • Tell me about the Block Party.
    MAC Fest will kick off on Sept 14th with a Block Party on the brick road in Stanwood. We've partnered up with area businesses to throw a great party!
