There’s only one place this weekend (August 15th and 16th) where you can watch traditional Filipino and Cambodian dancing, dragon boat races and Mexican wrestling-at the Water Festival in South Park! The festival is part of Duwamish Revealed, a summer long celebration of the Duwamish River.
ECOSS collaborated with Las Promotoras and the University of Washington Khmer Students to put together two colorful days of performance, art, food and activities showcasing the Latin America and Southeast Asia cultures.
The Water Festival is from 12-8 on Saturday and 12-6 on Sunday at Duwamish Waterway Park (7900 10th Ave S). For a complete schedule of events, visit:
If you’re feeling adventurous, paddle your way to the festival via boat or pedal your way on Sunday with the Cascade Bicycle Club. Join them for a leisurely ride from Jack Block Park to the festival. Along the way, you’ll stop and visit some of the other Duwamish Revealed art installations. Click here for more information about the ride.
The Water Festival is a one-time only weekend festival NOT to be missed, it will be a splash!
