FÈIS SEATTLE 2022 – Festival of Scottish Gaelic Language, Music, and Culture
ABOUT FÈIS SEATTLE
Embrace a living tradition! We bring together a thriving community of Scottish Gaelic language, music, and culture with tradition bearers from Scotland and Cape Breton. Evening cèilidhs, walks on the beach, waulking the tweed, visiting with old friends, and making new ones… It’s the Highland way!
Whether you’re interested in fiddle, harp, whistle, guitar, Gaelic song or language, we have something for everyone.
Covid-19 Requirements as of Sunday, March 13, 2022:
We have been closely monitoring the current situation and rapidly changing requirements. We will be following CDC and State requirements to use best practices to keep our presenters and attendees safe during the Fèis. We will be requiring proof of vaccination from attendees. Documentation should be emailed to email@example.com. If you have a medical exemption, we ask that you provide a copy of the exemption as well as a negative test result taken 24 hours prior to checking in at the Fèis. Anyone may wear a mask at the Fèis if they choose! We will update our requirements as we get nearer to the end of June.
