Bric/Brac Music and Arts Festival

A new music festival, presented by Open Space for Arts & Community, Mode Music and the Vera Project to benefit young artists, will launch in early August at Open Space for Arts & Community.

The Bric/Brac Music and Arts Festival, directed by island musician Mike Dumovich, will raise money for local music and arts programs that support the mission to inspire creativity among Vashon youth.

This year, the proceeds will benefit Mode Music scholarships and the ORBIT all-ages space at Open Space for Arts & Community.

Performers in the inaugural edition of the festival include Naked Giants, Caitlan Sherman, Julia Shapiro, and the Seattle band It’s All Happening.

The festival will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, outdoors at Open Space. Get tickets, which are by donation, and find out more at
