With over 30,000 visitors a year Summer Fest attracts a diverse audience with strong ties to Seattle, the music scene, and their neighborhoods
Join the growing list of businesses who value the quality sponsorships at Summer Fest.
The Junction Association’s goal for this event is to produce the highest quality programming and include the best vendors for our residents and visitors alike. We aim high and work hard to make this happen, and sponsor support is a critical piece.
Sponsoring Summer Fest provides important and necessary financial backing for the festival. This is our major fundraiser for the year. As the Junction Association is a registered 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, your sponsorship is also tax deductible.
Summer Fest gives your business the highest level of visibility at the event – and community kudos galore! We strive to treat our sponsors well with priority locations in the festival, logos on materials and website, and concentrated posts on The Junction’s Facebook and blog. Sponsors get click-through logo placement on every page of the Summer Fest website which received over 154,000 page views last year. We want festival-goers to know who to thank for West Seattle’s community festival.
Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to enter a different warzone: a household in revolt. His mother, liberated from an oppressive marriage – with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally – is on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy HIR, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.
“…sensational—in all senses of the word…[an] audacious and uproarious black comedy…Mac has his own gloriously skewed vision of the toxins fouling the American family from within, and in its avowedly loopy way HIR reflects current concerns about the decline of the middle class, as well as the trauma war veterans endure…brilliant writing…” —New York Times

As you know, we’ve been coordinating with Sound Transit for some time regarding their plans to extend light rail to West Seattle. Sound Transit is still in the early stages of design, but their current proposal includes an elevated rail line on Fauntleroy Way. If built after the Fauntleroy Boulevard Project, there is the possibility that most of the Fauntleroy improvements would need to be removed. Since Sound Transit won’t choose their preferred light rail alignment until mid-2019 at the earliest, we’re putting construction on hold to avoid putting Fauntleroy Way under construction twice in such a short period of time.
As you know, we heard community concerns about potentially having to deal with major construction twice in such a short amount of time and about prudent use of taxpayer dollars. We’ve also continued to hear support for the goals of the Fauntleroy Boulevard Project. West Seattle has multiple paving and transit priorities, and we will reallocate Fauntleroy Boulevard Project funds to address the community’s needs.
Sound Transit is still in the early stages of design for light rail to West Seattle. Sound Transit anticipates choosing a preferred alignment by mid-2019. Last month, the City announced plans to work closely with Sound Transit over the next 18 months to identify a preferred route for the light rail tracks and stations to the West Seattle Junction.

Save the Date! Dine out for Dakota on December 12th
The Urban Homestead Foundation is partnering with West Seattle restaurants on December 12th for a Dine Out event that will help raise money for the purchase of a property located at 50th and Dakota, across the street from Genesee Hill Elementary school.
This property will be the location of the Dakota Homestead and will be developed into a vibrant corner of sustainable green practices and urban agriculture, providing a place to celebrate our natural resources through demonstration gardens, classes and seasonal events.
The space will also serve as a food hub and seed lending library, connecting neighbors with each other and local farmers. In addition, the land will provide a wild space for schools to use as curriculum enrichment in topics such as edible gardening, urban wildlife, seasonal cooking, crafting and home finances.
Junction restaurants have agreed to donate a portion of food sales towards the purchase of this property during the Dine out for Dakota event from 5 to 8pm on December 12th: Great American Diner and Bar, Falafel Salam, Matador, and (Admiral District) Mission Cantina. Enjoy a night out and support these local businesses who are helping the Foundation achieve their goal of preserving the Dakota Homestead forever!
