Due to the unfortunate nature of the world today, with the Covid-19 virus, the Yakima Folklife Association has decided that the safety of our patrons, performers, sponsors, volunteers, and committee is paramount. To do our part to help keep the spread of the virus down, we have made the sad decision to cancel the 2020 Yakima Folklife Festival that was scheduled for June 19-21.
