About Northwest Folklife Festival

The annual Northwest Folklife Festival is the largest free community arts festival in the United States. Drawing nearly 250,000 people over just four days, Northwest Folklife plans to program over 6,000 performers in 65 different genres of music, from Hawaiian to hip-hop; dance performances representing cultures from Ireland to India. We believe everyone is a bearer of folk arts, and we encourage communities to share their cultural traditions, in the hope that interaction with new audiences will enrich the community as much as the audience.
