A popular Memorial Day weekend tradition in Seattle, Northwest Folklife Festival returns to the Seattle Center campus, May 23-26, 2014.
Northwest Folklife Festival is one of the largest community art festivals in the country, featuring diverse performers, participatory dances, workshops, crafts, food and more.
In honor of Northwest Folklife’s tradition to highlight one of the many cultures that make up the greater Pacific Northwest through dedicated programming at the organization’s signature festival event each May, Northwest Folklife will showcase a history of East Indian traditions, styles and identities across six different stages during the 2014 festival. Attend the festival to learn more about the Indian community of the Northwest through panels and discussions, films, dance and music presentations, visual arts and even a chance to learn how to dance Bollywood.
Northwest Folklife Festival is great for the whole family with the Discovery Zone.

The Discovery Zone will be located in the Next 50 Plaza and open from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. throughout the Festival.
