Seattle’s Annual Festival Calendar

Something Fun Awaits Year ‘Round

Whether your interests include music, dance, theatre, heritage, films or food, Seattle is your destination for festivals. We offer arts and cultural celebrations year round, with the biggest of all being the fabulous party that is Bumbershoot, the Labor Day weekend spectacular that features more than 2,500 visual and performing artists. Rolling Stone magazine named it one of the five best festivals in the U.S. And we’re justifiably proud of Seattle International Film Festival, the longest running, largest and most highly attended film festival in the United States.
