46th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival

Athena’s will be attending the 46th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival this year!

“Every year since 1972, the Northwest Folklife Festival has brought a celebration of diversity and tradition to the heart of Seattle. The Festival is our signature event; it creates opportunities for more than 6000 performers and over 100 community groups to celebrate, share, and sustain their art forms with thousands of festival participants.

More recently, Northwest Folklife has evolved into on a year-round organization, extending our reach with more programs that strengthen communities through arts and culture. Among year-round projects, we produce an annual CD compilation of performance highlights from the Festival, partner with other arts and media organizations to present a variety of live music and dances, and work with Northwest communities to help them find ways to best preserve their cultural traditions.”
