2013 NW Folklife Festival Meetup - 5 Photo Upload

The Folklife Festival is a must-do event if you are in the Seattle area on Memorial Day weekend. The festival runs from May 24 through May 27 at the Seattle Center. That's 4 days of music, food, and fun.

This meetup is planned for Sunday (free parking) at the Starbucks inside The Armory (Center House). The meetups are for meeting and getting to know your fellow photogs but if you want to go on another day, go and have fun. It's only a few days and there is no reason anyone should miss out on the fun. Don't forget to share you photos with all of us here.

There is a 5 photo upload limit. If you are uploading on another public site, share your link here as well.

The folklife festival is free to everyone but they are asking for $10 donation per day, $20 for family, to help pay for the expenses of running this festival. This is optional.


The schedule of events will be posted May 1st on the festival website. I look forward to meeting up with you on Sunday 11am. See you there and don't forget your camera. ;-)

    Thanks Dorrena, for setting up the Folklife shoot. It was fun! Although I am sorry I missed the meet-up part. Thought I better get some images up before this weekend's festivities!

    Awesome shots of the festival events. There were lots of people which made photographing a challenge at times but I see everyone did a great job.

    I will go to the Folklife Festival but will not be able to meet at the meeting place. Have another engagement. I will be around taking pictures around 3PM. Have never wanted to attend this thing but do look forward to shooting it. Hope I run into some club members. I was late to the Pioneer Square shootout so I met very few club members. PS-It was a lot of fun.

    I have to change my RSVP to no because I'll be working it as a volunteer and they've scheduled me for 12 hours both Saturday and Sunday! I'll be there and might see some of you though. :)

    • Donna

      Oh, and I'll be shooting in between shifts and for a couple of hours on Monday. I see from the response to Jeff's question it's okay to upload from a different day. Really good since I'll be getting into areas not open to the public!!! @,@
