Seattle’s 45th annual Northwest Folklife Festival, the country’s largest community-powered arts and culture Festival is this weekend! Beginning Friday, Northwest Folklife creates opportunities for all to celebrate, share, and participate in the evolving cultural traditions of the Pacific Northwest. Northwest Folklife Festival is the non-profit’s signature event, featuring over 5,000 performers from over 65 different cultural communities that help to make up the Northwest’s arts-rich landscape.
