The Northwest Folk life Festival
is the annual free climactic celebration of year-round ethnic, folk, and traditional arts activities produced by Northwest Folk life. The Folklife Festival is Seattle's unofficial leap into summer, with four days of jam-packed excitement.
Artists from the Pacific Northwest along with special guests from throughout the world create an ethnic extravaganza embracing music and dance performances, visual arts and folklore exhibits, hands-on ethnic children's activities, symposia, dance and music workshops, crafts, food, imported goods, demonstrations of traditional arts, and more! The exuberant tradition of sharing and participation at the Festival encourages exploration and learning between participants and public alike.
