Arts Support Organizations

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, the Community Investments Fund of Tides Foundation and King County Local Services.

This project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

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.


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!
