Help us grow the Seattle Children’s Festival!

The crisp air and falling leaves can only mean one thing, fall has arrived in Seattle. It also means that Northwest Folklife’s Seattle Children’s Festival is just around the corner. In its second year, the Seattle Children’s Festival is growing and evolving to bring our big neighborhood together through music, dance and cultural exploration. Right now, we have a unique chance for you to support the Seattle Children’s Festival and have your donations matched through the support of ArtsFund. If you believe that music, dance and multi-cultural play create strong communities for kids and families, now is the perfect time to make a donation to our Power 2 Give Campaign to help us fund our performing artists and stages at the Festival. Gifts can be made to the campaign through October 11 both before and during the Festival. ArtsFund’s power2give/PugetSound is an online Cultural Marketplace connecting donors with projects they are passionate about.

Your passion and support can inspire a child’s cultural IQ, and that can resonate for a lifetime. Northwest Folklife captures ‘living traditions,’ presenting arts and culture as a way of life. We believe that inspiring kids’ cultural intelligence will create a kinder world, and strong communities.

Your support helps us bring unique experiences to Seattle

Northwest Folklife’s  Seattle Children’s Festival engages kids and their families by bringing unique performers and workshops that represent cultures from across the globe in order to raise the cultural IQ of the children in our community.  Music, story-telling, dance, cooking, crafts and more spark curiosity and promote cross-cultural understanding, exploration, and acceptance. This year at the Seattle Children’s Festival we will have performances that range from acclaimed kindipendent artists like The Not-Its! all the way to traditional Vietnamese Lion Dance. Experiences like these are possible because of people like you who value investing in the cultural growth of our children.


Northwest Folklife’s Festivals are community-powered, charging no admission fee, thanks to your donations. By keeping our programs accessible to people of all ages and means, Northwest Folklife provides opportunities to all for self-expression and direct experience of the extraordinary and diverse big neighborhood of the Pacific Northwest.
