It is with sadness that we announce the cancelation of the summer Our Big Neighborhood event, Global Playground, initially scheduled for the first three Saturdays of August (August 1, 8, and 15) at Seattle Center Artists at Play. As gatherings of over 50 people will not be considered until Phase 4 of the State of Washington’s COVID-19 reopening plan, Seattle Center cannot host events on-campus this summer. Both Northwest Folklife and Seattle Center want to prioritize the safety of our community’s kids and families, and as such, we feel this is the best decision at this time.
We encourage you to stay safe; keep active; and sing, dance, and play until we can meet again. Until then, you can visit our website for more information on upcoming virtual events!
