11th Annual Sean-nos NW Traditional Irish Festival


The Sean-nůs NW Irish Festival is coming back to The Evergreen State College in Olympia - just an hour south of downtown Seattle! On April 14-15, join us for two full days of workshops and classes with instructors from Ireland and around the US. Offerings include classes on traditional Irish singing, sean-nos and group dancing, language, music, and culture. Learn to dance a jig, sing a song in Irish Gaelic, draw a Celtic knot, or cook an Irish meal. Come for one day or two and enjoy an authentic Irish experience - no previous experience is necessary! Adult registration is $75 for a single day of classes or $125 for the full weekend. Kids also welcome at reduced prices (recommended age is 12 and up, younger kids with prior experience also welcome). Full weekend registration includes admission to the Instructors Concert on Saturday evening. In addition to our usual classes, we also have a special half-day kids' program on Saturday afternoon, April 14th for ages 6 and up. Cost is $10 per child or $25 per family and features singing, dancing, music, a craft project, a story, and tea and treats! A tentative schedule and on-line registration available at Spread the word and we hope to see you there!
