We want to hear from you! Take our Seattle Children’s Festival Survey.

Seattle Children’s Festival is an event where the whole family can play, dance, sing, learn, and try something new! All are invited to this intergenerational celebration of the dynamic arts, cultures, and traditions that thrive here in the greater Pacific Northwest community with: five stages of lively performances, three ‘Discovery Zones’ packed with hands-on activities, interactive dance workshops, multicultural arts and crafts, and more! Seattle Children’s Festival is a part of the year-round youth and family program, Our Big Neighborhood, presented by Northwest Folklife and Seattle Center.
