Seattle Children’s Festival
Thank you for another fantastic Seattle Children’s Festival!
It was a great day of music, dance, art and exploration at the Seattle Center. More than 3,000 of our neighbors helped us to celebrate our BIG neighborhood along with 154 artists with 32 performances across 6 different venues. Families were able to experience all kinds of Folklife, from traditional Chinese dance to beat boxing. And so much more!
Thanks to our program partners for providing fun activities and performances. We couldn’t do it without the following organizations:
Center for Wooden Boats
The Creative Advantage
Gage Academy of Art
|Music Center of the Northwest
Seattle Art Museum
Northwest African American Museum
Seattle Children’s Museum
Seattle Gymnastic Academy
Technology Access Foundation
We hope to see you all back for the 4th annual Seattle Children’s Festival next year! Relive some of the magic of the day and see if you can spot you and your family in our facebook photo album.
