Bumbershoot is one of North America’s largest festivals, taking place at the Seattle Center (which, as a matter of fact, was for the 1962 World’s Fair). It began as a city-funded arts and musical festival called “Mayor’s Art Festival”, and the first Bumbershoot had an attendance of 125,000 people. The name of the festival was taken from the word “bumbershoot”, a 19th-century colloquial term for an umbrella (makes sense in such a rainy city, eh?).
