International Festival Moves to September

The International Festival in SeaTac has historically been a kick off to summer.  This year however with the move to a new weekend date in September the festival can now be considered as a kick off to the new school year! Regardless of the date, the intent of the festival remains unchanged and that is to celebrate the cultural diversity found within the city of SeaTac. 

The weekend festival includes a variety of ethnic and cultural dances and bands from around the Pacific Northwest, arts & crafts vendors and food vendors, a children’s play area and a family fun run. Admission is free and all events take place at Angle Lake Park. 

Arrive by water to avoid parking hassles! Take advantage of the new opportunity for boat parking by tying up to the new dock situated next to the boat ramp at Angle Lake Park.

Festival Hours
Saturday, September 6 - 10 a.m.-8 p.m.*
Sunday, September 7 - 10 a.m.-5 p.m.*
*Children's area opens at noon each day. Buy a wristband and play all day! ($5 per day)
