Northwest Folklife’s Community Calendar brings together our greater community’s cultural events and gatherings.
49th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival
May 22 - May 25
The annual Northwest Folklife Festival is a community-powered celebration of the music, arts, and heritage that make up the brilliant cultural tapestry of the greater Pacific Northwest. With over 5,000 performers on 20+ stages, 200 food/craft/import vendors, and 500 volunteers, this remains one of the largest access-for-all festivals in the nation. Since 1972, the Northwest Folklife Festival has brought together upwards of 250,000 community members to Seattle Center during Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate the ever-growing arts and cultures of the Pacific Northwest.
The 49th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival will take place on Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-25, 2020) at Seattle Center.
