Northwest Folklife is back!
The popular Memorial Day weekend festival will return as an in-person event (but with a strong virtual presence) May 27-30, 2022, at Seattle Center.
This year’s Northwest Folklife theme will be “Metamorphosis: In with the Old, In with the New.” It fits with a spirit of transition, transformation and growth. Folklife also is putting renewed emphasis on making its online and in-person programming accessible to all. This is the event’s 51st year.
Similar to in the past, programming will include music, dance, spoken word, visual arts, films, cooking demonstrations, panel discussions, participatory dances and workshops. Events will take place on 20 stages across Seattle Center, and organizers are projecting that more than 200,000 people will attend.
COVID-19: Masks are “highly encouraged” among festival-goers. Masks and vaccination proof will likely be required at indoor venues.
