Description

As its title implies, this festival is an overview of the tradition and folklore of the various communities in the Northwest US. For more than three decades the organizers have aspired to bring interesting artists, mostly musicians and dancers, that present the rich and colorful tradition of the region. Their mission is “to celebrate, share and sustain the vitality of folk, ethnic and traditional arts for present and future generations“ and every year they attract around quarter million visitors. However, this festival also offers a variety of smaller educational and entertaining events. It also goes beyond folk music and presents interesting indie bands. In the past, visitors could enjoy the music of Karsangjamtso "Karjam" Saeji, Parlour Hoppers, Colleen Raney and Dunava featuring Dave & the Dalmatians. Join the numerous visitors of Northwest Folklife Festival where tradition and modern culture intersect.
