Soto Style Dance Company at the Arts in Nature Festival

An Unparalled Experience

The Arts in Nature Festival exists at the nexus of art, nature, and community. As Nature Consortium’s founding project, this festival offers a eclectic experience of art and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. Rather than rows of vendors and merchants, you’ll find four intimate performance stages, winding hiking trails, interactive art installations, hands-on art and nature activities, and the great outdoors.
