2021 FESTIVAL HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Due to the unfortunate nature of the world today and gathering restrictions in place with the Covid-19 virus, the Yakima Folklife Association has decided to cancel the 2021 Festival.
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 2021 Yakima Folklife Festival.
