Unveiling Our “Folklife Is…” Video

“Folklife is…”

Northwest Folklife is an independent arts organization that celebrates the intergenerational arts, cultures, and traditions of a global Pacific Northwest, 365 days a year. We continue to define and redefine what it means to live out a “folklife” through sharing songs, dances, stories, traditions, and cultural celebrations. We are proud to be for the people, by the people.

Your Communities. Your Traditions. Your Folklife.
