Let your inner sprite come out to play in Fremont. It’s a neighborhood of year-round unexpected and unconventional entertainment.
Stand at the center of the Center of the Universe (Guidepost to the Center of the Universe shown to the left is located at N 35th, Fremont Place N & Fremont Ave N). Visit the Troll who turned to concrete just before snacking on a Fahrvergnugen. Gaze upon our Soviet-era Rocket. Shake a finger with Lenin (Vladimir, that is). See what creative costumes have befallen the Waiting for the Interurban statue.
Every Sunday Fremont boasts the oldest outdoor street market, The Fremont Sunday Market: with quirky finds and delectable bits this is an event unto itself. On the First Friday of each month enjoy a creative stroll around the galleries and shops participating in Fremont’s monthly artwalk; every first Friday, rain or shine. Throughout the year, Fremont hosts Seattle’s most creative festivals including the Moisture Festival, HopScotch, Fremont Fair and Solstice Parade, Fremont Outdoor Movies with our annual Zombie Walk, Music in the Sculpture Garden, Family 4th at Gasworks Park, Northwest Lovefest, Fremont Oktoberfest and Lenin Lighting… and so many more block parties, pub crawls and boutique extravaganzas.
Witness outlandish sights – from painted cyclists to zombies and from chainsaw pumpkin carving to art cars. And it all happens amidst incredibly unique locally, based shops and delicious, distinctive eateries.
