THE BIRTH OF THE FESTIVAL

The Anacortes Arts and Crafts Festival got its start in 1962 as the brain-child of Dr. Jack Papritz and a group of dedicated community arts patrons. The idea came from Dr. Papritz’s European travels, specifically the Parisienne Montmartre – a French open-air cafe.

With the support of the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, and $300 in seed money, the first festival in July of 1962 was billed as “the longest art display in the world.” In the 50 years since that simple beginning, the Festival has grown into one of the largest and most respected Festivals in the northwest.

​AlpenFolk was formed as an Austrian style folk duet in 1987 by Thomas Tilton and Corinne Pflug-Tilton. Now a quartet, Thomas plays the traditional steirische Harmonika, or button accordion, while Cori contributes the lovely ring of the hammered dulcimer. Their son, Peter steals the show with fine guitar work, rhythm instruments and vocals. Completing the ensemble is the talented Robert Baumann on string bass and vocals. The combination of these folk instruments, along with traditional vocals and yodeling, gives AlpenFolk a uniqueness and authenticity rarely enjoyed outside of the alpine regions from which their music is drawn.

Hello! My name is Laja Okunuga of Ade Africana Imports in Seattle, Washington , USA.

We have been trading in fine African Imports from our storefront business on the famous Broadway Ave. in the colorful and thriving Capitol Hill neighborhood for seven years now.

Over the years we have gained respect, and admiration in our community not only for our products, but also for our warm, friendly and comprehensive customer service. The people of Seattle have come to know us as a place where they can not only select from a wide variety of Carvings, Masks, Clothes, Jewelry, and Musical instruments, but also a place from which they can walk away garnering a smile, and a little better understanding of African arts and culture.
