About West Seattle Summer Fest

West Seattle Summer Fest is a production of the West Seattle Junction Association. Now in its 37th year, this festival keeps getting bigger and better with free music, great food and shopping, and loads of fun for kids of all ages. Old school West Seattleites still call it Street Fair or Sidewalk Sale, which is truly how this event began back in 1982. But no matter what it’s called, it’s a great time to close the streets, get together, and have the best festival of the year!

The Fun Begins When We Close the Streets

Art Walk + West Seattle Summer Fest!
July 12th + July 13th – 15th
The Fun Begins When We Close the Streets

The West Seattle Art Walk is doing something extra special for the July 12th Art Walk, also known as Summer Fest eve! They issued a call for artists to create chalk art on the streets in the Junction and have selected 11 artists. Here’s a sampling of the artwork of the artists you’ll meet this Thursday. Artists will be laying down chalk from 6-9pm. There will also be chalk for kids to color the streets.

Come out for Art Walk and make sure to join us for this interactive art experience!

Also happening during Art Walk is the popular Bubbleman. Check out all the bubbly fun at the intersection of California Ave SW and SW Alaska St 6:30 PM

While you’re in the streets for Art Walk, make sure you swing by the West 5 for their 15 Year Anniversary. The Yada Yada Big Band will be throwing down some tasty tunes 7 PM to 9 PM.

We’re not giving too much away, but you may also want to stay in the Junction for a surprise in the streets – 7 PM.

While you’re at Summer Fest watch for the new SOL (Save Our Lots) Junction Pale. Brewed by award-winning Elliott Bay Brewing, you’ll find this a refreshing brew to quench your festival thirst. You’ll find #SOL at the Beer Garden, Elliott Bay and The Beer Junction.

We’ll have plenty of music throughout the festival, including buskers, live music at Verity Credit Union and other pop-up locations.
