The West Seattle Summer Fest countdown continues! Today, two updates – one, a new feature at the festival, which runs this Friday-Sunday; the other, an update on Thursday night’s “Summer Fest Eve” festivities. First, from the WSSF-presenting Junction Association, the new feature you’ll find in the spot on the map above, where the pawprints are:

West Seattle Summer Fest is proud to introduce Pet Junction. This area is designed to provide festivalgoers with a host of resources to be good companions for our pets. You will find the latest information on how keep pets in good health, professionals in nutritional counseling, opportunities to meet local animal relief organizations and the Seattle Animal Shelter, a caricature artist to capture the moment, and lots of fun for our furry friends, including a fenced dog pool area. BYOB – Bring Your Own Ball!

If you are not a pet owner yet, this is the event for you! There are many cats and dogs that are in need of homes, and Pet Junction is an opportunity to meet rescue organizations that can connect you with a companion. And on Friday, July 11, the Humane Society’s MaxMobile bus will be at Pet Junction and full of adoptable animals. Pet Junction is sponsored by Next-to-Nature and Greentree Animal Hospital. Come by and learn some new tricks!

And you’ll also want to visit The Junction on Thursday night, which is, informally, West Seattle Summer Fest Eve, with the Junction streets closed (California between Genesee and Edmunds, Alaska between 44th and 42nd) as of early evening, and the WS Art Walk happening too. Elliott Bay Brewery has confirmed it’s bringing in Bubbleman, as usual – here’s one of our photos of him in action at the recent Morgan Junction Community Festival:

On Thursday night, he’ll be in action outside EBB, starting at 6 pm. Also that night, EBB’s outside seating area will be set up and they’re planning music by Pat Reardon, with “kid tunes to adult favorites,” no cover. And Elliott Bay plans outdoor music Saturday night, too, 5 pm-10 pm, celebrating its 17th anniversary, with The Back Porch Apostles.

(If your Junction business is planning something special for Summer Fest, please e-mail to let us know – we want to spotlight the year-round businesses as well as the visiting vendors – editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks!)

  1. In reviewing the list of musical groups, is there a way to identify what type of music each group specializes in? Knowing where to be would be helpful…

  2. I don’t think that kind of list exists but I was working on one more Summer Fest music preview so I can attempt to do that, it’s a relatively short list …
