Overview
More
Every Labor Day Weekend, thousands gather in the shadow of the iconic Space Needle for the city’s biggest festival of the year. Since 1971, this music and arts celebration has cultivated a diverse lineup of entertainment. Live bands are the main attraction, but you can also catch comedy, spoken word, dance or family-friendly performances. One Reel Film Festival showcases independent movies, and local food and craft vendors set up shop to share their handiwork.

This is by far the most unorganized music event I have ever been to in my entire life and I have been to my fair share. Purchasing tickets at the door was a mission onto itself as the event staff sent us running in circles...More
