Student Vendor Booth
Willapa Harbor Fesitval

The Willapa Heritage Foundation will sponsor a vendors’ booth at the 2016 Willapa Harbor Festival August 5-7 in downtown Raymond, WA. This space will be available for local high school students to sell their art/craft work. Students need parental/guardian consent and will be responsible for handling all of their own sales. All money earned by the students is theirs to keep. Mail your application to Willapa Heritage Foundation, P.O. Box 401, South Bend, Washington 98586. Acceptance for space at the booth will be the sole decision of the Willapa Heritage Foundation board. When a student is accepted for a place at the booth, they and a parent/guardian will be asked to sign a contract detailing their responsibilities when using the booth. All decisions will be final. For more information, please contact us.

What We Do

The Willapa Heritage Foundation provides support to local artists and supports the arts in the Willapa Bay area. We promote diverse cultural and artistic enrichment programs and opportunities for our community - children and adults - to both create and enjoy art.

The Foundation has one fund raiser per year, known as Hearts for the Arts, to support our principal goals. With the money raised at this auction we support many programs in the area.

If you are an artist and would like to donate a work to the auction, please contact us.
