What’s the Recycled Arts Festival all about?
The Recycled Arts Festival (RAF) started twelve years ago as a way to educate and get the community excited about waste reduction, reuse and recycling in Clark County. It has grown into a huge family event, with more and more artists participating every year.
Come on out and peruse the artists' wares, help your kids make their own handiwork, relax and listen to music, and get all sorts of info on what you can do to improve the environment!
An Award-Winning Event
The festival was recognized by the Washington Festivals and Events Association in 2016 for two statewide recognitions in the categories of Community Impact and Best Overall Event.
In both 2013 and 2014, RAF was awarded the distinction of “Favorite Downtown Event” through the Vancouver Downtown Association by popular vote.
In 2011, RAF was given the Innovative Recycler of the Year Award by the Washington State Recycling Association.
