Galaxy Far away foundation
BRINGING SCIENCE TO YOUR FICTION
Galaxy Far Away Fest has been described as "A rift in time and space, where all of your favorite sci-fi and intergalactic genres mix together upon a singular plane of existence..." Every year we gather to celebrate our love of sci-fi culture and science, by dressing up and gettin' down!!
Galaxy Far Away Foundation (and festival) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing science and art opportunities and education, in the Pacific Northwest for local, regional and national artists, and local youth. GFAF promotes community development, science enthusiasm and education, and fosters awareness and appreciation for the arts by making live performances, educational workshops and demonstrations, accessible to all ages and creeds. The organization provides educational scholarships, and subsidized concert tickets for youth and the underprivileged of the community.
GFAF will sadly not be hosting the annual Galaxy Far Away Festival in 2018. Fear not! The fest will be back stronger than ever in 2019 along with some other amazing events from now to infinity and beyond! Please follow us on FB to stay up to date on our other events and fundraisers.
