WHAT is arts-a-glow?

The Glow is a free community arts festival hosted by the City of Burien and developed and implemented by Burien city staff and community artists. 2024 will be the 17th year of the festival. 

Building on the success of last year’s festival, 2024 will feature a new collection art including projection mapping on buildings, light-art installations, roving performers, spectacles, and hands-on experiences for people of all ages.
