Seafair Events - 2013

Dates for Most of Seafair's Biggest Happenings


Seafair 2013

Seafair 2013


Seafair is an annual summer festival in Seattle that goes way, way beyond a single event—instead, Seafair is a umbrella term for dozens of happenings big and small throughout the Seattle area. Events include neighborhood block parties and festivals, but Seafair is most known for a few big, amazing highlights, especially the hydroplane races, Torchlight Spectacular, Milk Carton Derby and an appearance by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Unfortunately, while the Blue Angels have zipped around the skies of Seattle for 40 years of Seafair, there will be no Blue Angels in 2013. This is a sad result of budget cuts and the sequestration. Here’s to hoping the Blue Angels will return in 2014!
