I’m excited to tell you about a one day event coming up in Seattle this weekend that’s definitely going to be worth the trip! It’s the Northwest Folklife’s Seattle Children’s festival, a one-day, multicultural, inter-generational festival held on the Seattle Center grounds.
Families are invited to join in, “Celebrating Our Big Neighborhood,” as local communities introduce children to cultures and traditions from around the world through all kinds of awesome, hands-on activities and programs. There will be something for all ages, with live performances, workshops, and lots of opportunities for kids to play and get dirty. Here are just a few highlights
- Explore, create, build and learn together at our hands-on areas. Families are sure to try something new, get their hands dirty, and have fun in the process. There’s lots to discover in both Discovery Zones in the Armory lofts and the Fisher Pavilion from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
- In the Discovery Zone children can build a boat, play an instrument, cook with Chef Tarik (as seen on ABC’s “The Taste” and participate in a variety of interactive and hands-on activities.
