Save the Date! It’s nearly time for the Arts In Nature Festival!
(SEATTLE, WA—July 5, 2017) Save the Date! It’s nearly time for the Arts In Nature Festival – the intimate and spectacular outdoor arts festival held at Seattle’s only campground – Camp Long in West Seattle! (www.fest.naturec.org)
Over August 26-27, the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association will host musicians, dancers, actors and artists from all over the cultural, style, material and production spectrum! Wander the meandering, verdant paths of Camp Long to discover puppets by the pond, fine art in the forest, sound creations in the cabins and much, much more.
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, storytelling and choral collaborations from the Moonshine Revival Tent and a scavenger hunt installation by Melanie Reed, plus many more!
A convoy of food trucks including GAI BOX, PICNIC, and POP UP will keep you energized for art-making, dancing, and nature trail exploring. For an added dose of hoppy happy, Monumental Undertaking sponsors this year’s beer garden!
The 2017 Arts In Nature Festival takes place Saturday, August 26 11am-9pm and Sunday, August 27 11am-6pm at Camp Long in West Seattle: 5200 35th Ave SW. Tickets are $10 per day for adults (or $16 for a weekend pass) and $5 per day for kiddos 5-12. Get tickets through Stranger Tickets or buy them at the festival.
For the past 21 years, DNDA has brought together neighbors, non-profits, businesses and local government to build community in SW Seattle. DNDA activates growth in the Delridge corridor by providing access to vital resources for all our neighbors. These resources include affordable housing, food justice, preservation of green space, arts and culture, and education. Our work has always been to focus community issues through a social justice lens, while working directly alongside our community. Through hybrid projects and cross discipline partnerships, DNDA has been working successfully from the outset to meet multiple community needs. In addition to their portfolio of affordable housing, widely known DNDA programs include Nature Consortium, the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, and of course the Arts In Nature Festival.
