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.
The 2021 Festival is Over
The 2021 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 2021 Festival
There are a number of changes to the festival this year. Most importantly, the festival will be held virtually this year. For details on what this means, please see here. If any other part of our website has different information than presented on the Virtual Festival page, the information on that page takes precedence.
Enrollment for the 2021 Festival is now Open
Enrollment opened February 1st. The festival will be held virtually this year. For details on what this means, please see here.
Several divisions fill 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. They must join the Teachers Program before you can enroll in classes.
