This weekend is the 40th annual Fremont Fair, a community celerbration that is expected to draw over 100,000 people to Seattle's artistic neighborhood on Saturday, June 18th (10am-10pm) and Sunday, June 19th, (11am-6pm).
Coinciding with the 23rd annual Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade (Saturday June 18th, at low noon), the Fremont Fair includes performances by local bands, arts and crafts shopping, food and drink, artistic expression and fun for young and old – all coming together to celebrate the solstice and Fremont’s “delibertas quirkas” culture.

One of the Fair activities is the Seattle Art Car Blowout, a museum on wheels with more than 75 art cars on display.
Sunday at the Fremont Fair is Dads & Dogs Day. A puppy parade will take place with Fairgoers invited to bring their four‐legged friends to participate.
The Fremont Fair is a free community celebration. Funds raised through donations and in the beer garden benefit the Fremont Chamber of Commerce’s grants program to fund non‐profit projects that strengthen the Fremont Community.
The Fremont Fair is on Twitter, Facebook and maintains a blog.
