Bumbershoot 2018


Every day of the year, there’s a festival, performance, concert, reading or sporting event happening in Seattle.

There are unlimited opportunities to experience art, heritage, and culture while you’re in town. Step into a historic theater downtown to catch up-and-coming music acts as well as touring Broadway productions. Visit a gallery or museum to discover one-of-a-kind art with Pacific Northwest flair. Or attend a festival—everything from ones all about wine, beer, and cider to music blockbusters and more—for every interest. We invite you to discover the creative pulse that makes Seattle such a great place to visit.

Start by browsing our list of annual festivals and events or search events by specific dates, neighborhoods or interests below.
