Event description

Description

JaneFest is an all-day celebration of the life and work of Jane Austen at the University of Washington. It marks 200 years since her death in 1817, and is complemented by similar festivals around the world. The event includes a FREE Festival, including expo-style informational booths and participatory activities from 1:00-5:30pm, and will culminate in a Regency Ball from 7:00-10:00pm (sold out). Costumes admired but not required!

Attendees will learn about various aspects of Austen’s life, times, and work, such as Regency cooking, clothing, and embroidery, try your hand at Regency card games such as whist, and try your feet at Regency-style dances! Activities will include crafts, trivia, a visit to UW Library Special Collections, discussions of Austen’s fiction, dance workshops, a photo booth, fashion shows, and more!

DONATIONS will be used to cover the cost of the event, particularly to provide refreshments and an extra room to store Regency costumes and provide capacity overlow.
