45th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival
Are you a fan of folklife and folk art? If so, you won’t want to miss the Northwest Folklife Festival. Held every year since 1972, this festival is among the largest free folklife festivals in the United States.
The theme of this year’s festival is “The Power of Human Voice through Song”. You can experience this theme in the numerous musical guests, which will include choral groups, doo-wop artists, barbershop, glee, and more. There will also be thousands of other presenters, with a wide variety of performances, workshops, arts, crafts, and foods on display. If you have kids with you, take them to the Discovery Zone for a family-friendly, hands-on folk art experience where they can learn in a fun environment and try their hand at creating their own masterpieces.
The 45th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival shall take place at Seattle Center, not far from our North Seattle Hotel. It is scheduled to run from May 27th through May 30th. For more information on this year’s schedule, check out the official Northwest Folklife website.
