Fabulous folklife sets tone for Seattle weekend

May 23, 2013 by  

The Northwest Folklife Festival is celebrating its 42nd year and promises the audience the greatest showcase of talent from the Northwest.

As part of this celebration, guests will be able to enjoy other cultures and their music, song, and dance. Poster printing, banner printing, and flyer printing by area printing companies may have been the method chosen to promote this family-friendly event to the people in this city and the surrounding districts.

This year’s Northwest Folklife Festival will have a special focus on the personal histories and stories found in the workplace, which will be presented via a multimedia program named ‘Washington Works’. There will be plenty of folklore about the labor movement, as well as stories about jobs that have changed over the years, and most of these will be told through movies, historical presentations, and individual storytelling.

This year will see the premier event Nortena Dance Party boogying to dance bands, and the traditional music and dance from Asia will be showcased. Bollywood returns again this year, as well as the Monday night Reggae Showcase. There will be plenty of other entertainment, family activities, food, shopping opportunities, and a beer garden for guests to enjoy – hopefully with good weather to match it.

The Northwest Folklife Festival is free to attend will be happening from tomorrow, May 24, to Sunday, May 27, at the Seattle Center located at 305 Harrison Street in Seattle, Washington.
