During our festival, we will have a non-stage activities area for arts, crafts and presentations. This is an alternative opportunity for communities to showcase their cultures with a display table. Please keep in mind that display space is limited and the displays will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
The festival runs both Saturday and Sunday, and the cultural tables will need to be there for both days. If you are unable to have your table up both days, please let us know so we can make the necessary arrangements.
- We encourage you to have children from your community volunteer at your table as we’d like to foster more interaction between children.
- All cultural tables will need to be setup before the festival starts on Saturday, at 11:00 AM. You can access to the building as early as 9:00 AM.
- We can provide you with load/unload permits that will get you in the Seattle Center grounds. The load/unload permit allows you to bring your vehicle to the front of Fisher Pavilion outside of festival hours. You can unload up to 10:00AM (with 09:30AM being the latest entry). Please note that Seattle Center requires all vehicles to be removed by 10:00 AM.
- Fisher Pavilion is a secure building and you can leave your displays in the facility overnight on Saturday.
- Teardown begins at 6:00PM on Sunday. You can begin bringing your vehicles to load after the program ends and the visitors leave.
- Each cultural table will be given a stamp. Children will visit your display with their World Citizen Passport. Encourage them to ask questions about your culture and feel free to ask them questions as well. After a brief interaction, you can stamp their passport at the designated spot.
- Please don’t leave your table unattended. The main reason is we want children to learn about your culture. If you don’t have any helpers and need to step away, please call on one of the roaming volunteers to stand in for you.
