Fremont Fair Postponed Until 2021
We are saddened to share that the 2020 Fremont Fair, scheduled for this June, has been canceled.
For nearly 50 years, the Fremont Fair has served as Seattle’s celebration to welcome summer, delighting with free-spirit, creativity and whimsy. We will celebrate in the light together again in the Center of the Universe.
While we remain hopeful that the current stay at home and social distancing order continues to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have a responsibility to our Fremont neighbors, the 80,000+ guests who attend, and the hundreds of crafters, artists, chefs and musicians who participate each year. Now more than ever, we must do our part to remain vigilant in protecting our local and global community.
The Fremont Arts Council, organizers of the Fremont Solstice Parade held annually during the Fremont Fair, have also announced this year’s parade has been canceled.
As you can imagine 80,000+ Fremont Fair guests have an irreplaceable and enormous economic impact on the everyday businesses in Fremont. Now more than ever our local neighborhood businesses need your help to stay open. We encourage you to support these small, local businesses as much as you can through online shopping, takeout or food delivery options. Find who is open for business now at fremont.com.
In the meantime, we will be planning one heck of a summer party for June 2021!
helps thousands of folks to discover and visit our beloved #CenterOfTheUniverse.
Fremont Art Council’s 2020 Fremont Solstice Parade Postponed
Dear Fremont Arts Council Family and Friends,
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the Fremont Solstice Parade and Celebration at Gas Works until June 2021.
After assessing the current and projected data related to COVID-19 and hearing from King County Public Health and the Seattle Office of Special Events, the Board of Directors felt the wisest and safest choice for the FAC and the community would be postponement to next year.
Looking ahead, the Fremont Arts Council will need your support throughout this year, more than it ever has before. Click here to learn how you can help.
