Fremont Fair - Solstice Parade

The 42nd Annual Fremont Fair is this happening this weekend.  Yep, Friday is the Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year, and time to celebrate the sun and all things summer.

It's a free community celebration that draws over 100,000 guests to experience the quirky character of Seattle's eclectic and artistic Fremont neighborhood.  Coinciding with Fremont Arts Council's Solstice Parade (naked bike cyclists!), the Fremont Fair includes performances by local bands, arts and crafts shopping, food and drink, artistic expression, and fun for young and old - all coming together to celebrate Fremont's "delibertas quirkas" culture.  Over 300 vendors pop open their boutique tent shops.  Don't miss the art car blow out too.

Dates:  June 21 - 23
Friday Night Pre-Party (music and beer garden only) 4pm - 11pm
Saturday 10am - 8pm, Solstice parade at 3pm
Sunday 11am - 6pm, Dog parade at 2:30pm

My booth is located on 34th Street, a bit closer to Phinney than Evanston streets, on the canal side of the street (#B97).  I haven't been to this show for a few years, so I'm looking forward to checking out what's new and happening at this huge Seattle summer party.  Stop by if you're in the 'hood!
