Bumbershoot is a music festival that takes place in Seattle, WA every Labor Day weekend. The word “Bumbershoot” is a sort of cross between a parachute and an umbrella, which is kind of what the giant tents at the festival look like. The name was also chosen as the festival’s name as a “metaphor for the Festival being an umbrella for all of the various arts and performers it encompasses.”
