Seafair is known as the most famous Northwest summer event. Postponed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s back with the Blue Angels and so much to see and do along Lake Washington. If you are new to Seafair, it’s not a free event. Passes can be purchased here.

Prices range from $35 for adults all the way up to $160 for special weekend passes per person.

For a fun, cultural, family experience visit Umoja fest. Experience food, live music, and the Hood Basketball Tournament, and vendors. For more information you can visit their website:

You can witness fast planes, music, food, and a beer garden (21+ and up) with the best seats in Seattle to watch the thunder of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels’ takeoffs and landings. Plus the Blues will unveil their new jets – the Super Hornets – for the first time in our area.
