Cascadia Culture Week

Join CascadiaNow! and Cascadians around the region as we host a 2017 Cascadian Culture week, May 13th-21st.

Cascadia Day is traditionally May 18th, and every Cascadian is invited to host a potluck, presentation, or event. If you would like to host an event, or join one near you, please email

Cascadia Week to join together to help celebrate and raise awareness of Cascadia, meet our neighbors, and discuss and plan how we are going to positively create change here in the Pacific Northwest. Block parties, potlucks, movie nights, neighborhood cleanups, barbecues, tree plantings, wine tastings, wheat-pasting, pub nights, etc.  Join or host an event that you feel would represent Cascadia, and plug in with hundreds of others via twitter and livestream. Help us make Cascadia Day an annual reality! Raise your flag, wear your patch, and join hundreds of other Cascadians for neighborhood events throughout the region, building Cascadia as a positive force for change.

 Even if you can't join an event, think of something distinctly Cascadia you or your friends can do. 

Why May 18th? 

May 18th is the anniversary of the Mt. St. Helens eruption, chosen by former Seattle University professor David McCloskey as a day to represent Cascadia because of it's visceral reminder of the dynamism of our region. We live under massive forces that shape our world, in a region defined through it's geography, geology and topography - and we are all a part of these processes.
