Register for the fall festival of the season – Harvest Fest! Open to community groups, nonprofits and businesses. Harvest Fest is a wonderful way to connect with the community. 10×10 booth spaces are free! Sunday, October 27th 10AM to 2PM.
Quickly becoming a West Seattle beloved fall event, Harvest Fest will once again bring out the costumed (kids, adults and pets!), the daring (chili cook-off) and musical (parade) and the thirsty (hot cocoa and cider garden) as the West Seattle Junction closes down California Ave for a fantastic fall festival.
Check out the festival fun:
GAMES, CRAFTS AND ACTIVITIES 10 am – 2pm Games and arts activities brought to you many merchants, nonprofits and community groups all along California Ave from SW Alaska St to Edmunds.

• Candidates will have equal time to present their views.
• The candidates are asked about issues, with time to give the moderator an opportunity to ask in-depth questions.
The moderator and the Junction stay neutral do not imply approval or disapproval of any candidate.
HELP SUPPORT MUSICIANS AND BRING MUSIC TO THE WEST SEATTLE JUNCTION
Imagine you are musician. You like performing and people enjoy your music. Others enjoy your music so much they invite you to perform again – but just for tips. That can be pretty frustrating.
Musicians can’t live on tips. We want to help them make a living and have a twofold win-win vision in mind—to provide a venue where they can provide music that will entertain and complement the artistic community, while giving them an opportunity to be paid for sharing their time and talents.
But fulfilling the vision requires funding. And you can help. We’d like to have the ability to pay performers at least $125 (and preferably more) for each appearance.
Music is underway to bring live performances to the West Seattle Junction on Second Thursday Art Walk nights during August through December, for the benefit of visitors for Thursday Art Walks, dining, and just the opportunity to enjoy entertainment. Will you please make a contribution? Every donation, regardless of amount, will make a difference! You’ll be supporting musicians and the arts.
A minimum goal of $800 from Go Fund Me donations has been established; if we can raise more, performers could be paid more than $150 per event. (And if funds raised through Go Fund Me for this music series exceed the amount needed to support 2019 performances and related expenses they will be used towards anticipated costs related to presenting additional music performances in 2020.)
Funds will be used for paying performing musicians and other expenses related to producing, promoting and presenting the performances in the West Seattle Junction.
You can donate through the secure Crowdfund link.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to participate as a benefactor!
Tickets $25 advance or $35 includes a 6-bottle insulated wine carrier.

It’s the first ever West Seattle .5k. The West Seattle .5k is a beer run in the West Seattle Junction designed to push you to the limits of physical human endurance. (jk)
The .5k IS guaranteed to provide almost zero exercise but you’ll instead taste some of the best beers from the Pacific Northwest. At each hydration station, located in some of your favorite West Seattle bars, you’ll enjoy robust tastings from 10 different beers along with snacks, beer trivia questions and prizes. This is the race for physical underachievers who have wanted to do a run, but really didn’t want to.
About the ‘run’:
Take in neighborhood views around the Junction as you lay down 880 yards (.5k) of pure physical determination. This route is run on the wide pavement around the Junction, minimal elevation (zero) with two pedestrian crossings on California Ave. You’ll stop at set hydration stations (inside bars) powering up electrolytes (beer) while carbing up (snacks) for the next grueling (not) leg of the run (next bar). The course is not timed, and walkers, runners and beer-lovers of all abilities are welcome.
Packet pick up in the hallway of The Beer Junction starts at 12 Noon on race day. Start time is 1 PM – the race ends at 5 PM. Race is limited to 220 participants.
You can register as an individual or as a team.
The .5k too much for you? No worries – you can donate straight from your couch! Join the Beer Drinkers Couch Fundraiser here, you’ll help raise funds for the Junction without actually moving. It’s a win-win! All donations support free community programming and events in the Junction.
Donate $10.00 to $20.00 and we’ll send you a .5k sticker.
Donate $20.01 or over and we’ll send you a .5k mason jar AND a .5k sticker.
Included with run registration is a custom West Seattle .5k mason jar (for your beer), technical t-shirt, .5k finisher sticker and (most important) 10 beer tasting tickets good for 10 4oz pours.
