It truly takes a village to make a HONK! festival, and we’d like to thank all the villagers who have made HONK! Fest West 2013 a success.


We thank Shunpike, a Seattle 501(c)(3) non-profit that supports the arts, for operating as our fiscal agent.

4culture_colorHONK! Fest West is supported, in part, by awards from 4Culture, the Community Investments Fund of Tides Foundation, and the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.

We thank the original HONK! festival—the mothership—which inspired our festival and has since seen other offspring arise.


COMMUNITY BUSINESSES: In-kind sponsorship and fiscal support from community businesses is key to the success of our festival. This year, we were proud to partner with the following local businesses and receive their generous in-kind and fiscal support:

VENUES: HONK! festivals are a celebration of music in the streets, parks and neighborhoods. We also rely on donated green-room space for instrument storage and musician downtime, feeding, socializing and jamming. The following venues were indispensable in hosting the festival so we could share it with a few of Seattle’s many wonderful neighborhoods:

Columbia City Theater

Gas Works Park

Georgetown Neighborhood Council

The Mix

Seattle Art Museum
