Art in Ilwaco, Washington

Established in 1876, the community of Ilwaco, Washington has served as a port for fishing along the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. The town also hosts many festivals and has a great boardwalk along the marina. There are several art galleries that are right off of the marina. I visited the area last summer while I was staying at Fort Columbia State Park.

Any trip to the Long Beach Peninsula should include a stop in Ilwaco. Stop in the art galleries and spend some money! Growing up in a small town that depended on tourism, I am passionate about supporting small towns.

There is an Art Walk in the town the first Friday of the month during the summer months. Some of the art galleries are the Don Nisbett Art Gallery, Marie Powell Gallery, and the ArtPort Gallery.
