Craft for the Coast Sponsors

    Support Craft for the Coast!

    Our 2nd Annual Craft for the Coast Trash Art Contest is an exciting new event that engages our local community through art, upcycling, trash cleanups, and community activism. Participants will submit creations made from trash and will be entered to win a variety of prizes. We will be hosting an outdoor art show on Saturday, July 23 at the Arcata Farmers Market.
