The Details

Running from Sept. 3-5, 2011, Bumbershoot -- Seattle's annual music and arts festival -- has added a family-friendly component called Youngershoot, offering free admission to children ages 10 and under with a paid adult.

In partnership with the Children’s Museum, Youngershoot lets mom, dad and the kids explore a wide variety of family-friendly programming like Films4Families, The Magic Show, kid friendly interactive yoga, storytelling and live music. The schedule for Youngershoot is available online now.

For all attendees, Bumbershoot’s main stage performance takes place at Key Arena with such headliners as Daryl Hall and John Oates, Broken Social Scene, The Presidents of the United States of America and many more.

In addition to the main stage, more than 100 bands will play at 20 other venues located at Seattle Center.

Bumbershoot is an annual three-day music, theater, dance, literature, film, visual arts and comedy festival for all ages. Produced by One Reel, Bumbershoot takes place every Labor Day weekend at the 74-acre Seattle Center campus.

When not listening and dancing to live music or participating in arts and crafts, ticket holders have the option to explore the many food vendors set up throughout festival grounds.

Single-day tickets and three-day passes are available on a first-come first-served basis.
