    A parade along 4th Avenue in early July kicks off Seafair, a celebration of maritime and aviation history highlighted by the aerodynamic “derring-do” of the Navy’s Blue Angels F/A-18 fighter pilots, an All Nations Pow Wow at Daybreak Cultural Center, hydroplane races on Lake Washington, and battleships open to the public on the waterfront.

  2. Bumbershoot

    Performers from all over the world converge for this Labor Day weekend festival  that transforms Seattle Center into the arts capital of the Pacific NW. Its three days are packed with concerts, intimate theater productions, independent film presentations, and literary arts.

  3. Seattle Pride March

    The Seattle Pride March runs from Westlake Park to Seattle Center. Sponsored by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community, it attracts huge crowds from every orientation.

    Aficionados of tugboats and ships flock to this May festival. It makes for a free, fun, and family-friendly way to learn how the working waterfront has become a major factor in Seattle’s economy and culture.

  7. Northwest Folklife Festival

    A free May celebration of the Pacific NW’s ethnic music, dance, and arts and crafts, Folklife is a magnet for all the old (and new) hippies in the region. Given the diversity of Seattle’s Pacific Rim population, it’s virtually a festival of and for the world.

  8. Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF)
