Since it’s inception in November of 2009, The Humboldt Arts Project has sought to bring artists, businesses and community leaders together in order to put on events that celebrate the beauty and diversity of our artistic community. This year the H.A.P. has partnered with the Creamery District, Redwood Raks, and the Arcata Playhouse to bring you the Fourth Humboldt Arts Festival. Our main goal with the HAF is to promote the commercial development of the visual and performing arts in Humboldt County. All proceeds from this event will go into funding the annual Humboldt Arts Festival and Arts Arcata HAP events.
