Explore Seattle’s popular Fremont District on this guided, 90-minute walking tour. As the self-proclaimed ‘Center of the Universe,’ this eclectic, artsy neighborhood on the north shore of Lake Union thrives with its bohemian vibe and many, quirky claims to fame. This public art tour combines a mix of public sculpture and improvisational street theater — total strangers are not safe from this playful adventure. Check out the famous Fremont Troll under the north end of the Aurora Bridge and much more.
What to Expect
Our motto is Libertas Quirkas which in bad Latin means "the freedom to be peculiar". The Fremont district is Seattle's most playful neighborhood with a world class collection of quirky public art. Come see our collection on this tour, a street theater. Our program promotes public art with a mix of public sculpture and improvisational street theater. We are very interactive as we participate in an ART ATTACK, fire the 47' Fremont Rocket and meet the Fremont Troll's cousin. Our tour guides are a piece of art in themselves. There is The Fremont Fairy Godmother, Jeffe, the Turkish Rap Singer and Rocket Man, Super Hero sort of - to name a few. We carry props and will playfully involve strangers in the street who have no idea they are going to be a part of our story. This makes each tour different and quite entertaining. Our mission statement is to "Encourage people to find their playfulness through art and history." And this is what happens. COME PLAY!!

The guide, Rocket Man Superstar (Sort of) leads a fun - and periodically funny - walking tour of one of Seattle's most interesting - & slightly funky - neighborhoods (Fremont), with a focus on its fascinating public art creations. He's equally funky, but very agreeable...More
