Description

Those who easily get bored by one art form would enjoy a festival that has a wide scope and combines many types of art. Bumbershoot is also known as “North America’s largest urban arts festival“ and it takes place every year during the Labor Day weekend. For a several decades, the organizers have gathered the most prominent musicians, dancers, actors and other artists. In the past, they have presented various famous local musicians together with superstars like Bob Dylan and Mary J. Blige. The festival also hosted comedian Patton Oswalt with his friends, AXIS Dance Company as well as many theater groups and showed interesting visual arts and films. The title of the festival is derived from the informal word for umbrella and, as they say, this festival presents “an umbrella for all of the various arts and performers it encompasses”. So, you should come under this “umbrella” whether its rain or shine and take your shot of art at Bumbershoot.
