The 40th Annual Fremont Fair on June 18 and 19 is a celebration off Seattle’s eclectic and artsy Fremont neighborhood.
At the heart of the Fair are over 300 vendor booths filled with original arts and crafts, whimsical creations, handmade jewelry, imported tapestries and much more. Strolling through the streets of the Fair, you will find not only hundreds of artistic whimsies from chalk art to body paint, but some 50 funky hand painted art cars. Cars travel from across the country to create this huge gathering of Art Cars.
Showcasing Seattle’s favorite bands on four stages, plus a grilling competition, yoga for the solstice and artsy spectacles, the Fremont Fair has an outstanding music and entertainment line-up. With music on the Redhook Main Stage until 10pm, fairgoers can celebrate the solstice until the sun goes down.
Among the must-see-and-do artsy activities for the weekend is the Fremont Arts Council Solstice Parade on Saturday, June 18 at noon, a showcase of art via human-powered floats.
On Sunday, June 19 – the Dads & Dogs Day – fairgoers are invited to bring their four-legged friends to participate in this fun pup procession. Bring your puppy in creative costume or let your dog strut his or her stuff au naturale.
The Fremont Fair is free and open to the public and runs from 10am to 8pm on Saturday with the Redhook Main Stage and Redhook Main Stage Beer Gardens open until 10pm. On Sunday, the Fair is open from 11am to 6pm.
