2017 Arts in Nature Festival
Saturday Aug 26 11am-9pm & Sunday Aug 27 11am-6pm
DNDA presents the Arts in Nature Festival at Camp Long in West Seattle!
Unlike Any Other Festival the “arts in nature” concept encourages artists and audience members to engage in active participation with each other and with the natural 68-acre landscape of Camp Long.
You’ll find multiple intimate but spectacular outdoor performance stages, over 40 performances ranging from jazz, classical, indie rock, bluegrass, contemporary dance, and spoken word. The “Museum of Sound” is displayed through eight rustic cabins, hands-on art and nature activities, and winding hiking trails through the great outdoors. You can even create your own works of art by participating in multiple art activities, writing workshops and open mics, juggling, costumed hikes through the forest, and naturalist events!
This year, Arts in Nature is particularly excited to feature Seattle’s own Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band, known for bringing exciting reggae beats to wider audiences. Other artists include West African musician and Griot storyteller Naby Camera, rumba musicians Cocotazo, and a scavenger hunt installation by Melanie Reed, plus many more!
A convoy of food trucks including GAI BOX, PICNIC, POP UP keeps you energized for art-making, dancing, and nature trail exploration.
Kids under five get in free!
