Northwest Folklife

Northwest Folklife is an annual festival that takes place over Memorial Day Weekend. The event celebrates arts, culture and diversity in the Northwest.

The festival organisers say:

“Northwest Folklife is an independent arts organization that celebrates the multigenerational arts, cultures, and traditions of a global Pacific Northwest. Since 1972, Northwest Folklife has been deeply committed to celebrating the diversity of our Northwest communities and demystifying our differences together, under one roof.

Northwest Folklife believes that arts and culture strengthen our communities and should be accessible for all. Our year-round programming is produced in collaboration with over 130+ different Community Coordinators and powered by contributions from the community, corporations, foundations, and the public sector.”
