Popular Folklife Festival Wraps Up In Yakima

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. -- One of the Yakima Valley's most popular summer events wrapped up Sunday. It was the 32nd annual Yakima Folklife Festival. 

The two day festival included over 50 different acts on 7 different stages around town. Organizers say they could have never kept this event free without the tremendous support from the people around the Yakima Valley. 

"This festival has tried to stay diverse," Brian Felix said. "It's tried to stay family friendly, while at the same time appealing to the young and the old. Because of the atmosphere we try to generate, we have built a following that waits for us to come every year."

The event doesn't pay any bands for performing either. Organizers say it's a perfect event for inexperienced musicians to play in front of their first crowd.
