Arts in Nature
The Arts in Nature Festival in West Seattle’s Camp Long is a one-of-a-kind festival that breaks down the barrier between artist and audience to celebrate creativity of all kinds. Yes, there are dance and music performances, including Pat Wright and the Total Experience Gospel Choir, Naomi Wachira, Gamelan Pacifica and more. But families will also have many opportunities to participate with open mics, workshops on everything from marimba to creative writing, interactive art exhibits, Native American storytellers and naturalist events — including a costumed hike through the forest!
When: Saturday–Sunday, Aug. 25–26
Where: Seattle, Wash.
Cost: $10–$12/day for adults, $8–$10/day for students and seniors, $5–$6/day for youth ages 10–17, ages 9 and under free. Weekend passes available for $8–$20. A $50 Friend of the Festival ticket admits one adult all weekend and sponsors attendance for a low-income youth.
