The Othello Park International Music & Arts Festival 2016
Join us at Othello Park on Sunday August 14th, 2016 between 12p and 6pm for food, fun and festivities that reflect our wonder community’s diverse cultures. Download our 2016 Prospectus for more about who we are and why we love the International Music and Arts Festival!
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.
Othello Park is located at: 4351 S. Othello St, Seattle Wa, 98118
