What to Expect at the Crosscut Festival:

Thursday, April 30th

New this year, we'll be extending the festival to three days with the Headliners Gala. The Headliners Gala will bring our community together to celebrate and support great public media and journalism in the Pacific Northwest. A fundraiser for KCTS 9 and Crosscut, this special event honors newsmakers who take us beyond the headlines. Judy Woodruff will be our guest at the first annual Headliners Gala during the evening of Thursday, April 30th, taking place at the King Street Ballroom in the Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Downtown Pioneer Square.


Friday, May 1st

Friday programming includes free sessions from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM at Elliott Bay Books. Go behind the headlines with leading local journalists as we discuss Seattle’s most pressing issues. Following these community programs is the opening night keynote, moderated by PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff, at Town Hall Seattle.


Saturday, May 2nd

Saturday activities include a full day of conversation and activities on the Seattle University campus with over 100 speakers from across the nation and around the region. Sessions will take place concurrently throughout the day and across five venues. Immediately following the last session we invite you to join us at Optimism Brewing for complimentary drinks, food, art and the opportunity to mingle with your fellow attendees.
