ALERT: We have suspended operations through July 31, 2020.
Every Memorial Day we have the perfect event that combines ethnic, folk, and traditional art, crafts, and music. The Northwest Folklife Festival is an annual festival taking place at Seattle Center where attendees can learn, they can dance, they can play and they can discover and celebrate many generations and cultures.
This annual event will host over 5,000 performers from 100+ cultural communities where the main focus is rejoicing in the diversity that the Emerald City offers. This free event is family friendly where kids can enjoy the Discovery Zone where they will find hands-on, interactive activities for young children.
Not only will you experience phenomenal cultural music and dancing, but you can also indulge in the amazing ethnic food options they will have available as well. From Thai to Pho to Lebanese and Greek you’ll love delicious flavors the festival offers. And you’ll have the opportunity to shop some of the best folklife craft vendors around!
So, plan your long weekend to ensure this event is part of your schedule. This unique event is one you do not want to miss!
