Gibson Village Fall Festival

The annual Gibson Village Fall Festival - Providing activities for the whole family!


Join members of the Gibson Village Community in celebration! There will be information tables, artist workshops, performances, games, food and drink, and activities for kids!

See the FaceBook page for ongoing updates about activities and fun expected at the Festival day, held inside on both levels with Open Artist Studios, and out on the back Green here at ClearWater!

Also – see the PhotoVoice exhibit on view in ClearWater’s Main gallery upstairs – this 2019 PhotoVoice project has collected Gibson Village community members’ stories about the barriers and opportunities around accessing healthy food and recreational activities in this neighborhood, enlisting residents in taking pictures that show how their neighborhood affects their health.  These will be on view, with community questionnaires in the room to engage responses to the photos and the topic.

LOCATION: ClearWater Artist Studios at 223 Crowell Drive NW.

Parking is free and plentiful, in two lots along Crowell Drive NW and with overflow parking capacity in the field accessible from Cedar Street, across the stream and Greenway path from ClearWater.
