FESTIVALS: West Seattle Junction’s fall celebration splitting into two dates this year

Starting this year, the West Seattle Junction Association is separating its trick-or-treating event from the rest of the fall fun with which it used to be combined as the Harvest Festival. WSJA has announced 11 am-2 pm Sunday, September 24th, as the date for the West Seattle Junction Fall Festival, including favorite activities such as the chili cookoff, cornhole tournament, pie-eating contest, and live music, with less chance of a rainout, less need for major bundling-up. The festival stage will be at Walk-All-Ways, and activities will stretch into the block between Alaska and Edmunds. Then, Junction trick-or-treating will happen on the Sunday closest to Halloween, during the Farmers’ Market on October 29th, 10 am-2 pm, with merchants and partners handing out candy. Watch for more details on both events soon, but in the meantime, set your calendar!

    Wait – So does this mean that kids & their families won’t be dressed up for the fall festival anymore? This doesn’t seem like a great idea…

    Any idea where this leaves the WSHS band performance at the little park across from QFC, and the costume parade/marching band performance that previously happened during the Harvest Festival?  I didn’t see it mentioned in the details of either event on the Junction Association page.

    Not a bad idea but the avg temperature on 9/23 is typically around 72 degrees…

    Yes, trick-or-treat day will include a “full-on costume parade,” Chris at WSJA assures us.

    Do they mean Sunday Sepember 24th or Saturday September 23rd?

      9/24; my error, fixed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
