We have come to the extremely difficult decision to postpone the 49th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival (May 22-25, 2020). The Festival has taken place every Memorial Day Weekend, at Seattle Center for the past 48 years. This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately, we feel this is the best decision for our greater community in light of Covid-19.

For over 40 years the annual Northwest Folklife Festival has been a celebration of musical and artistic traditions at Seattle Center that is now the nation's largest community-powered arts festival. Enjoy ethnic, folk, and traditional arts activities, including music, food, and dance from all cultures.
