Seattle introduces folk weekend

May 25, 2012 by  

Starting today and running until Monday, May 28, the Northwest Folklike Festival, a multicultural celebration, will take place at the Seattle Center located at 305 Harrison Street in Seattle, Washington. This festival runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm and Monday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. This interactive festival celebrates ethnic arts and cultures and is held every Memorial Day weekend.

This year’s festival will feature art and craft vendors, folk arts by some of Northwest’s finest artisans, an uncommon market featuring global ethnic products, a courtyard called “Living Green” where guests can listen to music while learning about sustainability or purchase “earth-friendly” arts and crafts, enjoy live music from the all twenty-five stages, taste a variety of foods from the booths that will be providing food and drinks from around the world, dance to live music, and enjoy panels and workshops.

Interesting acts for Friday include the Busharest Drinking Team, the Bollywood Seattle Performers, and Ana Montes and Flamenco Danzarte. Saturday’s followers can enjoy Pete Seeger’s Sing-along, Cajum and Zydeco Dance, Dance for Joy with Waltz Performance Troop, and American Women: Roots Musicians. Sunday will feature the Hip Hop and Break Dance Competition and on Monday, visitors can dance a merry jig with the Baile Glas Irish Dancers.

Admission to this event is free. Flyer printing and stationery printing services are probably being used to promote this great event. For more information, visit the Northwest Folklife Festival website or call the Seattle Center at 206-684-7200.
