What is Waking Persephone (WP)?

It is a bellydance event celebrating the dark and the unusual through workshops, performances, live music, vending, discussion, and more.

When is WP?

October 13th-16th, 2016

Where does WP take place?

In 2012 and 2013, WP took place in beautiful historic Providence, Rhode Island.  In 2014, Waking Persephone moved to the Greater Seattle, Washington area – from one coast to another – and a great time to visit beautiful Seattle!

The main event (workshops, Gala Shows, vending, etc) will take place at the historic Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Our pre-festival meet & greet, called Motif, takes place at El Norte Lounge, just north of the LCCC. Our Sunday night afterparty is the Underworld Ball – featuring live music and much more – and takes place at Hale’s Palladium Theater.

How do I get there?

Seattle is easily accessible by planes, trains, boats, and automobiles. Cause, it’s Seattle.

Flying in? Choose Sea-Tac Airport (SEA). Both the LCCC and Hale’s are easily accessible by car and public transportation.

What activities will there be?

There will be an array of workshop offerings by amazing instructors, including master classes and discussion panels. There will be shows featuring the instructor staff, applied performers, special guests, and live music, and more. In addition there is an amazing bazaar featuring jewelry, costuming, artwork, henna, photography, and much more!
