Summertime is prime time for locals and visitors alike to discover why the PNW might just be the best area in the USA. How can you make the most of your time while the sun is still shining? Get involved with the community at local events and festivals! There are plenty of summer happenings for the whole family to enjoy in the Northwest. We’re shining the spotlight on a few upcoming community events:

  1. Take a Bite of Seattle’s local flavor, July 20-22. Foodies will find themselves surrounded by delectable fare from the Emerald City, and summer brings a whole new variety to what’s cooking. 60+ restaurants and pop-up vendors provide dining, drinks, live cooking demonstrations, cook-off battles, and more.
  2. The Bellevue ARTSfair exhibits handcrafted art from over 300 artists, local music and dance, a kid’s fair, and more July 27-29. The streets of downtown Bellevue will be sprawling with creativity, making this the largest arts & crafts festival in the Pacific Northwest. If you’re interested in supporting both local and national art, the Bellevue Arts Museum is seeking volunteers.
  3. Splash around Seattle at Seafair Weekend, August 3-5! There’s no better time to get out on the water surrounding our city than during Seattle’s unofficial holiday weekend. Hydroplane races on Lake Washington, the Blue Angels of the Boeing Airshow roaring above, and pirate’s landing on Alki Beach combine to create a completely unique experience.
  4. Get cultured at downtown Issaquah’s Wine and Art Walk, held every Saturday in September. Local galleries and merchants invite all to sip and savor their way through the charming downtown district of Issaquah while enjoying fine art, crafts, music, dance, and more.
