American Roots Concert Series - 2021

Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission’s mission involves both a commitment to care for the state’s most treasured lands, waters, and historic places and a desire to connect all Washingtonians to their natural, cultural, and artistic heritage through memorable experiences in the parks.

Since 2004, the Folk & Traditional Arts Program has added to those memorable experiences with events in state parks by musicians, dancers, craftspeople, and storytellers who represent a wide variety of old and new Washington traditions. From tribal canoe family journeys to Cinco de Mayo festivities, from fisher poetry to Ecuadorian song, from Hawaiian hula to old-time square dances, the program brings people together — some to celebrate a common heritage and some to learn about the traditions of others.

The 2021 Folk & Traditional Arts Program season will include virtual and in-person events due to the continually evolving COVID-19 pandemic.  Click the link below for more information.
