festivials and events

Here come the holidays (already?)! This weekend you can get a head start on your holiday shopping (or eating), feast on chocolate to your heart’s content or experience a variety of arts and music at the City Arts Festival.

If you are not at the Earshot Jazz Festival this weekend, check out a few film festivals, explore wildlife at the Point Defiance Zoo and listen to Grammy Award winning group Manhattan Transfer.

This Saturday you can join the green-minded at events in Seattle celebrating the international day of action on climate change.

First thing in the morning you can be in a parade of boats and bikes, feet and wheels, pedaling, rowing, sailing, walking, dancing, skipping, skating, jumping, cartwheeling our sweet selves from all over Cascadia to Lake Union Park, according to the Website for the Moving Planet Seattle events.

The weather has been up and down in the past week but not to worry! This weekend should be full of sunshine and warmth for these festivities ... or we certainly hope so.

From simple county fairs to a garlic festival and acrobats, you won't want to miss out.

For a fifth year in downtown parks, Seattle Parks and Recreation’s popular dancing in the park returns. It’s worth staying downtown for, or making downtown an after-work destination, so join the fun!

From a crazy bike race (with a really terrible name) in Seattle, a cool Native Arts Festival in Tacoma to (how could we not mention it since there’s no escaping the roar of the jets overhead) Seafair – there's just too much to do tonight and this weekend.
