Summer Fest’s final day, relocated Farmers’ Market, more for your West Seattle Sunday

The final day of the return of West Seattle Summer Fest – and the Farmers’ Market one-day relocation – start our Sunday list:

It’s been a fun festival; our Saturday coverage is here and here, and our Friday coverage is here and here. Today’s festival hours are 10 am-5 pm; we’ll be back on the north side of the Info Booth (California/Alaska), which is also where you can buy Summer Fest T-shirts, get and turn in your Whale Trail maps, and solve problems from first-aid needs to lost-and-found. Other Summer Fest basics:

Vendor booths: On California between Oregon and Edmunds
Sidewalk Sale: Outside many year-round Junction shops, including some on 42nd, 44th, Oregon
Music: None today, a change this year
Kids Zone: SW Alaska west of California (free games, plus 5 inflatables accessible for $20 daily pass)
Food: SW Alaska east of California (plus year-round restaurants/bars, some of which have added sidewalk cafés)
Whale Trail activity for kids: Get and return your card at the Info Booth – also see the Springer presentation at the Senior Center (4217 SW Oregon) at 3 pm
Bus reroutes: Follow that link to see route-by-route info on where the stops have moved to until the streets reopen Sunday night

Because of the festival …

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm, the market is happening at its usual time, but at a DIFFERENT location for today only – one block north of where you’ll usually find it – north of SW Oregon. First time ever in this spot – past years have relocated the market elsewhere for the day.

Here’s what else is happening today:

CHURCHES WITH ONLINE SERVICES: We’re continuing to list these – see today’s list here.

TAILS TO ASTONISH ANNIVERSARY SALE: Last of three days you can shop the first-anniversary sale at West Seattle’s comics-and-toys store (4850 California SW; WSB sponsor). Open today 9 am-2 pm – just south of The Junction, so you can visit on your way to Summer Fest.

WHITE CENTER LIBRARY GUILD SIDEWALK SALE: 11 am-4 pm, at White Center Library (1409 SW 107th): Second and final day for this sale offering books and “gently used household treasures.”

    Great, so poor kids get to watch rich kids play on inflatables. I’d love to suggest to the people putting on this event to do a “suggested donation” and let all the kids play.I don’t even have kids, this is just triggering from growing up poor. Don’t make kids suffer the emotional weight of not having money. Let them all play, please. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
