Fremont Solstice Fair
June 19 @ 11:00 am - June 20 @ 6:00 am
Join us June 17-18, 2017 to help us toast to the Summer Solstice & celebrate the quirky character of Seattle’s eclectic & artistic Fremont neighborhood!
Founded in 1972, the Fremont Solstice Fair is one of Seattle’s most beloved neighborhood street festivals, featuring a weekend of eclectic activities that celebrate the quirky community of Fremont, the self-proclaimed “center of the universe.” Held annually in mid-June to coincide with the Summer Solstice, the event draws more than 100,000 people to shop, eat, drink, mingle, groove, and enjoy all manners of creative expression. Artistic highlights include craft and art booths, street performers, local bands, wacky decorated art cars, the free-spirited Solstice Parade produced by the Fremont Arts Council, and many other oddities that personify Fremont’s official motto “Delibertus Quirkus” – Freedom to be Peculiar. The Fremont Solstice Fair is produced by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and funds raised benefit a number of area non-profits including Solid Ground, a local poverty-focused non-profit who originated and produced the Fair for nearly 40 years.
