West Seattle Summer Fest 2011 - Another reason to ♥ West Seattle! July 8th, 9th & 10th
It's that time again- time to close the streets of West Seattle's Alaska Junction and let the people go crazy! And by crazy I mean listen to bands, hit the beer garden, check out the booths for all the great West Seattle-based merchants, see some local art, let the kids run wild in the Kids Area, eat some tasty food... the list goes on and on. This is the 29th year of this FREE 3-day event that attracts upwards of 30,000 attendees from all over West Seattle and beyond.
