Fremont Fair – Seattle’s Solstice Tradition

In 2021 we celebrated summer with the Fremont Summer Solstice Art Week–an opportunity to ramble through Fremont and get to know all the art, large and small, enjoy the Art Cars, and take in the Fremont Arts Council’s stationary floats, all while enjoying the diverse range of eats and drinks Fremont has to offer.

Now we are planning an event for June 2022! Get the latest program information at FremontFair.com

A Free Spirited Solstice Weekend

Held annually in mid-June to coincide with the Summer Solstice, the weekend draws more than 100,000 people to shop, eat, drink, mingle, groove, and enjoy all manners of creative expression. Founded in 1972, the Fremont Fair is one of Seattle’s most beloved neighborhood street festivals, featuring a weekend of eclectic activities that celebrate the quirky Fremont community. Artistic highlights include craft and art booths, street performers, local bands, wacky decorated art cars, and of course the free-spirited Solstice.

Celebrate the Solstice until the sun goes down while you quench your thirst on your favorite summer brews and listen to live music on two music stages.

Funds raised at the Fremont Fair benefit a number of area non-profits including the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and their community grants program, funding projects from Solid Ground, The Friends of Troll’s Knoll, Art Cars, Lenin Lighting/Festivus, and more!

 We hope to see you Solstice Weekend!!
