DAY 1: Alki Art Fair, 20th-anniversary edition

Been to the beach yet? You have until 6 tonight to catch the artists/vendors, 9 tonight to catch the music, on day 1 of the 20th anniversary edition of the Alki Art Fair. We just walked through – there’s lots to see and buy. Angela Belzetsky‘s pelican caught our eye:

Don’t miss the free kids’ activities just west of Alki Bathhouse. There are two music stages, the main stage just east of the bathhouse, and a busker stage on the boardwalk at 63rd – here’s the schedule. Back to the bathhouse – go inside to see the 20th anniversary display, and to bid on silent auction items- these are just a few of the ones with bidding closing at 4 pm.

You can catch the shuttle bus from the Spokane/Avalon/Harbor park-n-ride under the bridge (it’s a big yellow school bus) or get there many other ways (we noticed bicycles in the area from the two new bike-share companies that debuted in Seattle this past week, Spin and LimeBike).

P.S. If you missed it earlier this week, here’s our interview with Giovannina Souers, who’s been involved with the Alki Art Fair since it began 20 years ago.

    Beware – the free shuttle does NOT stop in front of the starbucks to pick people up. Weve been waiting for 30 minutes only to see the shuttle arrive at alki a few blocks uproad, and turn away from us.

      Done for today but … when we were there a few hours ago, it appeared to be stopped alongside Alki CafĂ© at 61st/Alki.

Sorry, comment time is over.
