There is pretty much always something fun going on in Seattle, but sometimes it can be overwhelming to figure out which things are actually worthy of your attendance. Well, I’ve done my research, and here’s what I think you should do this weekend.
When: Saturday, September 22, 2012, Noon to 11:00pm*
Sunday, September 23, 2012, 1:00pm to 9:00pm*
The Fall Free for All is a community arts festival complete with music, dancing, drama, film, and even stuff for the kiddos. It is a fantastic way to support local artists, dine out, and explore Tacoma. Tacoma holds a special place in Andrew and I’s hearts because he attended the University of Pudget Sound in Tacoma. We’re excited to go back, and I hope you’ll join us!
Oh, and did I mention the best part? It’s all FREE so long as you register for a wristband here!
Grab your lederhosen, becuase it’s time for Oktoberfest: an outdoor festival full of music, beer, and gute zeiten (which, as I understand it, means “good times”)!
The Oktoberfest Village is open to all ages, where you can experience live music, visit the Village Beer Garden (which has a great view of the stage), watch Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving (yeah, that’s a real thing. And awesome), and on Sunday even participate in activities with your pooch.
The 21 and over crowd can also purchase tickets into the Tasting Garden where a token buys you a sample from one of these many breweries. Tickets range from $15-$30 (depending on the number of tokens you purchase) in advance, but rates go up once this weekend hits. There are over 80 different brews to choose from, but Seattle Beer News has some suggestions on how to spend those precious tokens.
