BALKAN NIGHT NORTHWEST features bands with membership from all the Balkan countries as well as home-grown aficionados. In years past we have had over thirty bands, just from the Seattle area! Amazing! There is something for everyone.
You don’t need a partner, and you can dance how you like!
FOOD AND DRINK will be available for purchase, provided by the St. Demetrios Greek folk dance program and the Seattle Junior Tamburitzans. You can also purchase beer, wine and soft drinks in both halls.
BALKAN NIGHT NORTHWEST is an annual festival showcasing Pacific Northwest Balkan musicians organized by an all volunteer committee and dedicated to fostering a vibrant Balkan music and dance community. Proceeds from the festival go towards identifying and enhancing cultural connections between various Balkan communities of the NW through music and dance, and bringing Balkan musicians from afar and showcasing them at the festival.
We have a Mainstage for the dance bands where you can expect wall-to-wall music until midnight!
For a more casual atmosphere, you can relax in the Kafana room, have a drink and enjoy music in a more intimate setting. Additionally, in the mezzanine area we'll have scheduled performances and dancing!
