Festál Turns 20 Fête & Benefit
The Festál Turns 20 FÊTE is fully designed to give you a taste of Seattle Center Festál in one evening. All 24 ethnic festivals will be represented through food, drink, décor, performance, dance, art, exhibits, and music. This is a 21+ event. There will also be an opportunity to donate to ensure the legacy of this series of ongoing cultural festivals.
Festival leaders, volunteers and the greater community are invited to join in a night of cultural celebration and festivity. FÊTE attendees will experience the breadth of cultural and ethnic expression in the Pacific Northwest with live performances, wine tasting and food. Join us and celebrate the reach of Seattle Center Festál in our city and beyond.
Japanese, Italian, African American, Mexican and Arab cuisine with wines from around the world will be served, along with a special tasting of French and Italian wines. Make Japanese origami, an authentic Hawaiian lei or a Marita Dingus African doll from re-cycled materials. Bollywood and Irish dance will bring excitement to the evening, along with a Vietnamese lion dance. A fashion show will showcase traditional and contemporary fashion from Croatia, Africa, Vietnam, Iran, and India. Experience music from the Seattle Center ethnomusicologist James Whetzel, who will deejay the event with sounds from the Festál series. The evening closes with a cup of rich Turkish coffee.
