This year’s Bumbershoot continues its legacy of celebrating innovation and the search for what’s next in the multi-disciplinary art forms of dance, film, literacy, theatre, visual arts, and of course, music.

The name Bumbershoot was chosen both as a knowing nod of respect to our city’s most famous weather pattern, and a symbol of the overarching mission: to be an umbrella for all of the arts.
