Folklife Festival 2015Over Memorial Day Weekend, I did something I’ve never done before. I attended the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle. Held every year since 1972 and recognized as a Local Legacy in 1999 by the Library of Congress, the festival is one of multiple events put on every year by Northwest Folklife, a year-round entity.More Like This
Things there were to do there were fairly eclectic. Lots of shopping and food vendors, Music at the Beer garden and individual musicians scattered throughout the grounds. Benefits and Charities like Pasado’s Safe Haven (an animal rights sanctuary) were scattered about in separate booths, amidst product vendors offering samples and demonstrations. It was a little overwhelming at first, to say nothing of the figurative RIVER of people streaming out of the Pacific Science Center. Although when I came back a few hours later, I found it much easier to navigate upstream, in that I could move forward through it at all.
