Get yourself ready for the University District Street Fair this weekend, whether that means dusting off your old india print sarong or just arranging your weekend so it involves no attempt to travel east of I-5:
The U District StreetFair is the kick-off event for the festival season in the Seattle region. It is also the longest running street festival in the nation! Self-described as “country fair meets urban retail corridor”, the StreetFair attracts more than 50,000 people and over 300 craft and food booths to the District on the third weekend of May each year.
The StreetFair is an energetic and exciting celebration of arts and crafts, community information, music, and food. You’ll find a whirl of color and creativity. Join us this year and celebrate our 40th annual Fair. We invite everyone to dress up in the fashions of your favorite decade. We will have contests with prizes for best costumes all weekend long! There will be two main stages featuring music from 4 decades, a special children’s area with age appropriate events, an interactive oral history event to collect StreetFair memories, a wonderful medley of street performers and much more. The unique local and regional arts & crafts and an array of international food will delight you.
Saturday, May 16th from 10 – 7 & Sunday, 17th from 10 – 6. Details on their web site.
