Welcome to Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside (PAFE)
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing a fun and educational experience for young performers in the Greater Puget Sound area since 1986. Our festival is always held the week after Easter at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church.
The 2019 Festival is Over
The 2019 Festival is over. Thanks to everyone who made it a success: our students, their parents and teachers, the adjudicators, and all of our volunteers. We look forward to seeing many of you again at the next Festival.
What’s New for the 2020 Festival
There are a number of changes to the festival this year. Please be sure to see if any of these impact you.
- The PAFE website is now fully accessible on all devices.
- Once you have enrolled in classes, there can be no change to the pieces being performed.
- Once the schedules have been posted, there can be no changes to these schedules.
- Unfortunately, we have had to discontinue the Opera class.
- All Ensemble performers must now register individually.
Enrollment for the 2020 Festival is now Open
Enrollment opened February 1st. Several divisions are filling quickly, so be sure to enroll soon. If you don’t see your teacher listed for your class, please check with your teacher to ensure they joined the PAFE Teachers Program.
The Piano, Violin-Viola, Woodwind, and Cello-Bass divisions are already closed. If you are still hoping to be part of the festival, please enroll. New enrollments will be added to our waitlist. When scheduling, the Division chairs will try to add students when possible. There is still space left in the Voice division!
The 2020 Festival is our 33rd Season
