Now that this weekend’s big events are (mostly) over, we’re looking ahead to a festival that’s just five days away – Holy Rosary’s WestFest, next Friday and Saturday (September 20-21). Here’s the official announcement:
Come one, come all! Holy Rosary’s annual fall festival is right around the corner! Located at 4142 42nd Avenue SW, we throw open our doors and welcome all Friday 9/20, from 6 pm to 10 pm, and Saturday, 9/21, from 10 am to 10 pm. We are gearing up to host the season’s premier event for the West Seattle community; come see great local music and talent, eat delicious food, dob a round of bingo, race down the rides, try your luck at the cake walk, play carnival-style games galore, and so much more. There’s a beer garden for adults too — there is truly something for all ages!
Bring your young children early Saturday morning, from 10 am to noon, for “Toddler Time” at WestFest. Avoid the crowds and lines! They’ll enjoy better access to the blow-up rides and games with kids close to their age and ability.
Wristbands for Blow-up Rides:
Take unlimited turns on our wide selection of rollicking rides with an activity wristband. Bands are available at for purchase at WestFest on Friday (9/20) for $12 and Saturday (9/21) for $20, or $32 for both days. To allow everyone a safe and fun experience, unsafe or disrespectful behavior on or around the rides may result in loss of ride privileges, up to and including loss of wristband.
Admission to the Cake Walk and Kids’ Carnival-style Games are not included with the wristbands. Blow-up rides are $3 each without a band.
Organizers won’t have the entertainment lineup for another day or two but we asked about the food lineup, and received this list:
Hot dogs, corn dogs
Chicken Wings and Fries
BBQ Ribs (award-winning)
Ice Cream Root-Beer Floats
Plus the aforementioned cake walk and beer garden.
