Words from the Festival
" ABOUT BUMBERSHOOT: THE HISTORY AND THE PARTNERSHIPS
Now approaching half a century, Bumbershoot is one of Seattle's largest cultural touchstones. Each year, thousands of people from across the country flock toSeattle Centerto attend this acclaimed festival, which has become one of the biggest and most-loved contemporary festivals in North America, while having maintained its Northwest spirit and innovative roots. The name Bumbershoot was chosen both as a knowing nod of respect to our citys most famous weather pattern, and a symbol of the overarching mission of this festival: to be an umbrella for all of the arts. Since 1972, Bumbershoot has been a multi-disciplinary arts festival showcasing the best of comedy, dance, film, literary arts, music, performing arts, theatre, visual arts and more. Spanning theSeattle Centergrounds, a campus originally created for the 1962 Worlds Fair, Bumbershoot has continued its legacy of celebrating innovation and the search for whats next.
The programming at Bumbershoot strives to be a contemporary microcosm of what is current across all disciplines and genres within those art forms, giving our audience opportunities few other festivals in the world offer."
