The Dell'Arte Inaugural Guild Presents:
Baduwa't Festival: A Gathering of the People
Formerly known as the Mad River Festival, the Baduwa’t Festival is a culmination of performing arts, music, celebration and connectivity, held on the ancestral lands of the Wiyot Tribe. In Soulatluk, the Wiyot language, Baduwa’t is the word for Mad River. The festival name change was approved by Wiyot leaders in Spring 2021 and Dell’Arte is honored to support the work of the Wiyot Tribe to revitalize the language by using the original name of the river for the festival name.
The festival will be held in Dadiqhoughuk (Blue Lake) July 14-18 at Dell’Arte’s spaces at 131 H. Street with COVID-19 safety measures in place. Attendance will be limited and festival-goers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as much as possible.
