It truly takes a village to make a HONK! festival, and we’d like to give a huge shout out to the organizations who helped make HONK! Fest West 2018 a reality (in no particular order):



We thank Shunpike, a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success.

HONK! Fest West is supported, in part, by grant awards from 4Culture and the Community Investments Fund of Tides Foundation.


We thank the original HONK! festival—the mothership—which inspired our festival and has since seen other offspring arise in Austin, Detroit, Australia, Brazil and beyond!



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. We are also thankful to the City of Seattle for allowing us to use the city’s parks and public streets.

It takes a lot of donated food and an amazing crew of hard-working volunteers to keep hungry musicians and volunteers well-fed throughout the festival. Thank you

HONK! Fest West 2018 is volunteer organized, planned, staffed and performed. Our deepest HONK! thanks to the 400+ people who help staff or perform at this year’s festival (and sometimes both!)



HONK! Fest West depends on the continued financial support of the community; thanks to our donors this past year!
