Northwest Folklife returns in person for its 51st annual festival in May

Seattle has changed a lot over the years, losing much of its original funky charm. However, there are still a few things that remind us of the good old days. Namely, Northwest Folklife, which just so happens to be returning in person next month.

Like many festivals, Folklife has had to get creative during the pandemic, opting for a mostly digital experience that, let’s face it, isn’t the same as the real deal. After all, there aren’t many other festivals where Seattle’s young, OG creators and unique characters come to play. Not only that, but it’s a true downtown Seattle experience.

So what can you expect from this year’s festival? The cultural focus is Metamorphosis, the idea of ​​”In with the Old, In with the New”, which is very appropriate given the past two years. This year’s festival aims to celebrate “people’s natural propensity for change”. Although this year’s festival is all about change, you’ll still have old mainstays like live performances, vendors, food, and more.

The exact details for this year’s festival are still being finalized but you will be able to enjoy it in a hybrid format. So if you want to watch certain things from home, you can totally do that. Otherwise, be sure to follow Northwest Folklife’s Instagram for all new updates. Happy folk life!
