Seafair Weekend Festival

Seafair Weekend Festival

While in the boating capital of the world, make sure you check out Seafair, a weekend that is referred to as an unofficial Seattle holiday. For the past 72 years a boating show, an air show, and a festival have been combined into one iconic event. It will feature food, music, lake activities, competitions, and entertainment. 

Magnolia Summerfest

Magnolia Summerfest

Embrace the Seattle community at Magnolia Summerfest, a three-day festival centered on summer family fun before school starts again.  Attend a pet costume contest, have a drink in the beer garden, try cuisine from local chefs, and watch the parade and live musical performances.  Kids can get creative at the arts-and-crafts booths and work off some energy in the bounce houses.

Lake City Summer Festival & Parade

Lake City Summer Festival & Parade

Attend one of the largest festivals in Seattle.  Spreading across twelve acres and four city parks, the Lake City Summer Festival is full of over-the-top fun and entertainment.  Wander through the car show, listen to live music, catch a movie, or browse for souveniers at the festival, then cool off in the afternoon heat at the beergarden.  The day ends with three parades - the kids parade, a canine version, and the Grand Parade with costumes, performers, and floats.  It's a day you won't want to miss.
