Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 festival has been canceled. The dates for the 2022 festival are Friday, July 15th through Sunday, July 17th. Watch for more news here.
Get the latest news about West Seattle Summer Fest right here!
For 38 years, the biggest festival in West Seattle has continued to evolve, starting out as the Sidewalk Sale, then the Street Fair, and now Summer Fest – it’s been a three day celebration in the West Seattle streets and a tradition for many families.
The festival has been a July tradition in West Seattle since 1982, the same year Seattle became the Emerald City. Even prior to the West Seattle bridge being built (but that’s another story…).
After much discussion, the Junction has made the safest decision for the community – to cancel the 2020 Summer Fest – July 10-12th.
We are saddened but hopeful we will rise like a Westside phoenix to bring back Summer Fest stronger than ever July 2021.
In the meantime, we’re developing a plan for a block party-style community gathering that will be announced as soon as we’re confident it’s safe to bring people together. Current events and info from King Co Public Health give us hope for a late August date.
We’ll continue to monitor all health regulations and sincerely hope the Junction merchants can show appreciation of the outpouring of community support by bringing you one day that celebrates all the West Seattle goodness we’ve stored up through this pandemic.
While the vendors at Summer Fest can’t be with you on the streets, they can be with you virtually. Shop the vendors here, thanks for supporting them. We’ll see you in July, 2021.

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!
