Through it all, we believe living out your ‘folklife’ can happen in any place, at any time. As such, in line with our mission to continue to serve our community, we have created a virtual platform where we can collectively showcase our folklife, right from our homes. Northwest Folklife and Seattle Center are proud to announce From Home to Home: Northwest Folklife Festival, presented by Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, taking place May 23-25, 2020 online at

We hope to see you continue to share your songs, dances, foods, and stories that keep us going. As we look ahead to celebrating 50 years in 2021, we look towards future days to gather as friends, neighbors, and family alike. With that said, although efforts have shifted to hold our community in this time of need, we are envisioning what the next rendition of the 49th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival can look like to best serve the needs of our community.

YOU are Folklife—you are our family, and we will get through this together.
