ORGANIZATION: Northwest Folklife

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Volunteers are the heart (and hands!) of Northwest Folklife. From the beginning, so many people have generously brought their life experiences, skills, and time to sustain a truly community-powered experience to the Northwest Folklife Festival and the array of programming offered throughout the year.

Northwest Folklife is seeking volunteers from May 23-June 3, 2022, for 51st Annual Northwest Folklife Festival at Seattle Center. It takes hundreds of volunteers to staff the festival and ensure its sustainability.

About Northwest Folklife



Mission Statement

Northwest Folklife creates opportunities for individuals and communities of the Pacific Northwest to celebrate, share and sustain the vitality of folk, ethnic and traditional arts for present and future generations.

Northwest Folklife carries out its mission in a variety of ways, most notably through the annual production of the free Northwest Folklife Festival.


Northwest Folklife is a year-round nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for all people to appreciate, share, and participate in the evolving traditions of the Pacific Northwest. Every year since 1971 we have presented the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle Center on Memorial Day Weekend.
