In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition of Seattle Center Festál: Seattle’s French Fest: A Celebration of French-Speaking Cultures, which was due to take place on March 22, 2020.

This event has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you next year at the 9th annual festival in March 2021. Read the full cancellation press release


Inspired by the worldwide "Day of Francophonie," this free, public festival is open to all as part of the Seattle Center's Festàl series. At the event, festival-goers of all ages have an opportunity to enjoy many activities – all with a “French” twist: wine tastings, live music, theater and dance performances, French cuisine, book sales, informative seminars and demonstrations, “best baguette” contest, games and more.
