Parade’s over but – as shown in our West Seattle Saturday lineup – other big events are on, including the first day of the Alki Art Fair! Above, a mother-and-daughter team you’ll find among the more than 60 artists/vendors at the fair – Holli (from Holli With An I Photography) and Iris Clementine. We have a crew at the beach right now and will be adding photos a bit later. Quick links:

*Today’s music lineup for the main stages here (PDF)
*Silent-auction items inside Alki Bathhouse

And remember you can take a shuttle from the West Seattle High School parking lot (3000 California SW) if you’re not biking, bus-riding, walking, skateboarding, etc., to get to the fair, which is along the boardwalk, paralleling Alki Avenue from about 60th SW westward. Artist booths are open until 6 pm today and again 10-6 on Sunday, with music continuing tonight until 9.

ADDED: More scenes from Saturday – all photos below are by WSB’s Katie Meyer. Beautiful afternoon for a fair:

Music filled the air all day long and into the evening – this is MoonGirl:

So much to see, hear, and do, whatever your age:

The art being shown and sold is sometimes dazzling:

Sometimes fun:

And you’ll find it in a variety of media:

Or – if you’re of a certain age – create your own; Young At Art is there for projects with little ones.

Also look for Seal Sitters, whose art and essay contest for kids is under way (read all about it here), with a chance for them to enter at the fair:

Remember – it’s the “Year of the Seal“!

Sunday hours are again 10 am-6 pm, with music continuing until 8.

  1. I missed the Art Fair due to the Village Green Garden tour and the West Seattle Garden tour, but I see my tour photographer had a great time showing her work! Holli with an i.
    What a talented photographer she is! She has done some wonderful photos of my daughter and I, as well as the gorgeous shot of her kids dressed up as a dragon and a Fairy here at the nursery-which I guess was a huge hit!
    Looks like a fun time. Gotta love West Seattle summers!
    Great coverage!
    Thanks!
