The West Seattle Grand Parade, occurring annually since 1935, is hosted by the West Seattle Rotary Service Foundation and is one of the oldest and most beloved community events in the Seattle area.

It is a proud member of the Seafair family of events and includes all of the pirates, clowns, marching bands, drill teams, floats, pageantry and excitement that leads up to the Seafair Torchlight Parade the following weekend.

The West Seattle Rotary Club also organizes the Hiyu Kiddie Parade on the same day which forms at Genesee and California and steps off heading south about 4 blocks to Edmunds at the same time as the Grand Parade steps off a mile north. Kids bring your bikes and wagons; parents bring your strollers. Free balloons and candy!

West Seattle Grand Parade in 2016 is Produced by the West Seattle Rotary Service Foundation and will be held on Saturday, July 23 at 11:00 am. The parade begins at California SW and SW Admiral Way, and continues down California SW to finish at SW Edmunds.
