1 week until West Seattle Summer Fest 2015! Countdown begins…

West Seattle’s biggest event of the year is now just one week away: West Seattle Summer Fest, the three-day street festival in the heart of The Junction!

The West Seattle Junction Association presents the festival, with co-sponsors including WSB, and over the next week we’ll be previewing more of what you’ll find when you go. Today, some basics:

DAYS/HOURS: Friday, July 10, 10 am-6 pm; Saturday, July 11, 10 am-6 pm; Sunday, July 12, 11 am-5 pm (on Friday and Saturday, music/beer gardens run later)

MUSIC SCHEDULE: See it here (as originally announced in May)

GREENLIFE SCHEDULE: The sustainability zone at the south end of the festival (California north of SW Edmunds) has posted its schedule, with events ranging from info you can use to make your daily life more sustainable (including backyard poultry at 1 pm Saturday and , to discussions of development (featuring District 1 City Council candidates, 2 pm Saturday) and bicycling’s future (4 pm Sunday)

SUMMER FEST FOR KIDS: Basics here – more info in our next countdown update.

PET JUNCTION: Just north of SW Oregon, including pools to keep your pup(s) cool

T-SHIRTS: Love the Summer Fest logo? Come to the Info Booth at California/Alaska to buy a shirt!

WHERE IT’S HAPPENING: If this is your first Summer Fest since moving to West Seattle – California SW closes for festival setup between SW Oregon and SW Edmunds around 6 pm Thursday night (July 9th, which is also West Seattle Art Walk night and has some informal “Summer Fest Eve” elements – more on that coming up) and stays closed to motorized-vehicle traffic until late Sunday night (July 12th). Most of the block between Oregon and Genesee is closed too – that’s where you’ll find the stage and beer garden – but Oregon stays open to through traffic. Festival admission is free, but bring $ for kid rides, food, shopping. See you there!

P.S. – ABOUT THE FARMERS’ MARKET: (Added in response to Eric‘s comment below) For Summer Fest Sunday only, it’ll be back in its old spot, the lot on the southeast corner of 44th/Alaska. Same hours as always, 10 am-2 pm. (Then, after Summer Fest, as of July 19th and beyond, the market goes back to California SW between Alaska and Oregon.)

    Where will the Farmer’s Market be held on Sunday? In the old lot?

      Thanks, Eric, I meant to mention that – we have mentioned it several times already but it needs to be here too, will add – short answer, yes, the “old lot” at 44th/Alaska, that day only, then back to the street on July 19th and beyond. – TR

    Too bad the The Summer Fest music line up doesn’t have enough diversity or different genre I won’t be hanging longer than normal.

    • WSB July 3, 2015 (2:37 pm)

      Which genres do you want to see included?

  • Mar-C July 3, 2015 (8:14 pm)

    Rock n roll!

    so thankful it’ll be cooler next weekend. I’m excited to see all those smiling kiddos and paint some faces! Happy Summerfest!

Sorry, comment time is over.
