8/13: Celebrate with Othello Park Music & Arts Festival

From the Othello Park International Music and Arts Festival:

Join us at Othello Park (4351 South Othello Street) on Sunday, August 13, from  12pm to 6pm for food, fun and festivities that reflect our wonder community’s diverse cultures.

We’ll gather in a grassy meadow under big, old trees at the 10th annual Othello Park International Music and Arts Festival. A world of ethnic variety will convene with music, dancing, food, art activities, booths and a petting zoo including a camel!

Othello Park features strolling walkways, a permanent stage gracefully designed to suit its pastoral landscape, and a zip line. Come sit, relax, and enjoy the park’s beauty and the show.

Then you will want to be up and about visiting the array of tents and booths and sampling Rainier Valley’s colorful diversity of businesses and organizations. One large tent on the green will shelter the Festival’s traditional “Art Creation Station” to engage those young in age and young at heart, in a variety of hands-on visual art activities led by local artists.

Featured guest performers this year will include:

  • Lion Dancers/Mak Fai
  • Somali Youth
  • Northwest Tap Dancers
  • Capoeira
  • Seattle Drum Circle
  • Clava Cubana
  • Bollywood Katrina Ji
  • Spoken Words by Brenda Wright
  • Vualiku Fijian Youth
  • Seattle Drum Circle
  • Kids Open Air Dance
  • Salem
  • South Pacific Youth
  • DJ Justin
  • Kids Open Air Dance
  • Peace & Red Velvet

The festival culminates the Rainier Valley Culture Fest Weekend, an official Seafair event and is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
