Mayoral Candidate Forum on Public Safety, Sat, June 22, 10am-12pm, City Hall - Bertha Knight Landes Room, 600 4th Ave, free.
Rocking with Redhook
The Fremont Fair is much more than bicycling in the buff– in addition to the famous naked bike ride, the weekend celebrates the artistic, fun-loving, quirky side of Fremont with local band performances, shopping, arts and crafts, food and drink, and a 5k run.
There's no better place to kick-off summer in Seattle than in the Center of the Universe.
Start out at the Friday Night Pre-Party before the morning of Solstice. The pre-party features a lineup of local bands– The Fabulous Party Boys, Skablins, Cumbieros, Longstride, and Publish the Quest– and a bevvy of local beers provided by Woodinville's Redhook Brewery to kick off to Saturday morning's Solstice Parade.
Friday Night Pre-Party, June 21, 4-11pm, Redhook Main Stage, corner of Phinney Ave N and N 35th St, free.
