Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Presented by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce June 16 and 17, the 41st Annual Fremont Fair is a free community celebration that draws over 100,000 guests to experience the quirky character of Seattle’s eclectic and artistic Fremont neighborhood. Coinciding with Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade, the Fremont Fair includes performances by local bands, arts and crafts shopping, food and drink, artistic expression and fun for young and old – all coming together to celebrate Fremont’s “delibertas quirkas” culture.
Kick off your Fremont Fair experience with the Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade starting at noon on Saturday, June 16. A non-motorized display of mobile art, the Solstice Parade annually draws over 50,000 spectators to the heart of the Fremont neighborhood. When the tail end of the parade goes by, guests flock down to the Fair for shopping, eats, live music, and more.
Sunday, June 17, is Dads and Dogs Day at the Fremont Fair. Featuring a pup parade paralleling its human counter part, the Solstice Parade, fairgoers are invited to bring their four-legged friends to participate in this artful Dog Day Parade.
Sunday is also the day to celebrate Father’s Day. Shop over 300 vendor booths to find the perfect gift, watch the Grilling Competition together, or for those 21+, buy dad a celebratory brew in the Fremont Fair Beer Gardens.
The 41st Annual Fremont Fair also features the Seattle Art Car Blowout with more than 50 funky decorate art cars on display and live music on four main stages. The Main Stage and the Main Stage Beer Garden stay open late on Saturday so you can celebrate the solstice until the sun goes down.
Fremont Fair is a benefit for Solid Ground, a local poverty-focused nonprofit who produced the Fair for nearly 40 years. The remaining funds collected in the beer gardens and onsite donation boxes go into the Fremont Chamber of Commerce’s grants program and are awarded to non-profits to fund projects that benefit the Fremont community.
