Seattle native Ken Jennings hosts the ultimate trivia night.

With a great music lineup already in place, Bumbershoot has added more reasons to spend Labor Day weekend at Seattle Center. This year’s Theatre, Words and Ideas, and Performing Arts lineup includes transgressive director John Waters performing his one-man show This Filthy World: Filthier and Dirtier, Jeopardy ace (and surprisingly hilarious tweeter) Ken Jennings hosting a Seattle-centric trivia night, the writers of Futurama discussing the show’s brand of social satire, author Adam Mansbach telling your children to Go the F**k to Sleep, and the Modernist Cuisine team showing us how to use a centrifuge to make a meal. To view the entire lineup, visit

Sept 1–3, Seattle Center, single day tickets ($40–$200) and three-day passes ($110–$475).
