The Day Of Festivities begin with the Solstice Parade at noon, followed by the Picnic at Gasworks Park at 1:30pm and the Pageant at 3:30 pm on Saturday, June 18. The Solstice Parade kicks off the Fremont Fair?a benefit for the Fremont Public Association.
The Solstice Celebration is an outpouring of creativity and community, a time for shedding cares and inhibitions as summer arrives in Seattle. In our Workshops, artists and people who love art come together to create beautiful, funny, satirical, and memorable objects and performances. Ideas are developed into human-powered ensembles that move and groove together through Fremont as the street is transformed into a roving theater with thousands of spectators.
At Gasworks Park, a picnic-style afternoon unfolds with family and friends relaxing on blankets. The day culminates with the rebirth of the sun through the grand spectacle of the Solstice Pageant, a community collaboration involving hundreds?artists, actors, dancers, musicians, and You!
The Parade will lead music, costumes, and throngs of dancing people into Gasworks Park where the 6th Summer Solstice Pageant will be performed.
