​The San Gennaro Foundation is a non-profit organization, created in 2013 to honor St Gennaro, the Patron Saint of Naples, and his commitment to help people in need. It is the goal of the Foundation to raise money through events such as the San Gennaro Festival, which celebrates the Patron Saint of Naples, the Blood Miracle of St. Gennaro, and the contribution of Italian Americans to the Northwest. We are planning a fun filled event with plenty of entertainment, great food, and interesting exhibits. We will also have the participation of the Puget Sound Blood Center and will hold a blood drive during the event, in honor of the Blood Miracle of St Gennaro. Each year the foundation chooses local charities to donate a portion of the proceeds. Past charities include: Treehouse, Camp Goodtimes, and Bloodworks NW.

The festival began in 2006 after Cyrus Khambatta, Executive Artistic Director for Khambatta Dance attended an Artistic Director Leadership training program with a grant from The Paul G. Allen Foundation and began to realize a long, stirring desire to connect audiences with dance through the festival environment. After a decade in which his own Khambatta Dance was invited to numerous international festivals, each with its own particular take on dance, he found the excitement and fervor with which audiences digested dance works to be a stimulating environment in which to create.
