West Seattle Summerfest

This weekend is the West Seattle Summerfest.  Wahoo!!

I love this show every summer.  It's the perfect neighborhood festival, where everyone comes to hang out and visit with friends and neighbors.  The restaurants lining California Ave all have little sidewalk areas set up so you can watch the action.  There are live bands, with music stages at both ends of the street, plus a beer garden.  Stores have special sidewalk sales.  The vendors are a big mix of anything and everything - including commercial businesses, imports, handmade stuff, the works.  Families come during the day to do the jump-y/bouncy games and kids activities.  Working people head over in the evening for dinner and entertainment.  The West Seattle Hi Yu pageant girls make an appearance. Sometimes we even see Pirates.

Stop by for brunch or the Farmer's Market on Sunday and check us out.  Or head over Friday night for a little happy hour and stay for the music.  Whatever fits in your schedule.  It's all a good time.

Official hours for vendors are different than the official hours of the show, so some vendors may close earlier - just fair warning.

Hours of show:  Fri 10-8, Sat 10-8, Sun 11-8 (July 11-13)
Hour for vendors:  Fri 10-6, Sat 10-6, Sun 11-6
Location:  West Seattle Junction, intersection of Alaska & California Ave, plus a block in each direction on California Ave.
Booth Location: Space #94.  Very close to intersection, first set of tents north, on west side of street, maybe a storefront or so up from Easy Street on that corner.
