Participants from past festivals
Now in its 35th year, the Northwest Folklife Festival runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. over Memorial Day weekend, May 26 through 29, at the Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St.
Admission is free, but a $5-per-day donation is suggested.
During the festival's four-day run, the diverse communities of the Northwest will share their cultural traditions. Visitors will sing and dance, taste cuisine from around the world and learn from each other.
The Northwest Folklife Festival is the largest folk, ethnic and traditional arts event in North America and features more than 6,000 musicians, dancers and visual artists.
