Seattle Children’s Festival is a chance to discover the arts and culture of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. The event, the 8th annual, will be online from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 16-17.
Saturday’s events will feature four Seattle-area neighborhoods: the Chinatown-International District, Ballard, Rainier Valley and the Eastside.
Programs will include Wing Luke Storytime, “ABCs of the CID,” martial arts, Nordic stories, majorette dancing, 12-bar blues, Persian dance, Arabic crafts and much more.
On Sunday, the Festival Gathering Room will feature interactive song, dance and discussions on zoom. Presenters will include Sunshine Music Together, Penguin Productions and Families of Color Seattle (race-identity discussion for adults). Families will need to preregister.
Finally, the festival’s passport program is back with a special interactive online form. Virtual passport stamps can be earned by exploring the program offerings.
In addition, collecting all of the stamps (or making a $10 donation) makes families eligible for a drawing. Prizes are two special gift baskets.
