Northwest Folklife Festival 2022

This event is in the past
Every day, through May 30
Seattle Center Uptown (Seattle)
This is an in-person event
This year, the Northwest Folklife Festival will be celebrating fifty-one years of wangly-ass hippie beardos playing the congas in tie-dyed parachute pants and no shirt (you know the guy we’re talking about). There’s also some great musical acts, including Boise-based world music collective Afrosonics and local tuchus-shakin’ Klezmer band Shpilkis. For those who aren’t hep to Folklife, it’s a huge open-air music/art festival at the Seattle Center, and there’s buskers and actual concerts and impromptu jam seshes, plus tons of stalls selling gorgeous food from around the world, along with ethnic arts and cultures being showcased, Oh, and there’s a bunch of cool workshops and lectures, too. It’s all real crunchy and wholesome. If you haven’t been, you should totally go. by Meg van Huygen
