The Best of Seattle This Summer
Some might think that Seattle only has coffee and drizzly weather going for them, but I’ve come to discover that’s dead wrong. There’s more to Seattle than just kicking back and watching the clouds roll by with a warm cup of coffee (thought that does sounds pretty amazing right now). If you’re looking for something to do this summer, you should take a quick jaunt to Seattle, Washington. You won’t be disappointed! In fact, check out some of these cool events they’ve got going on this summer.
California wine has nothing on beers of the Northwest! Enjoy Seattle Beerfest, a celebration of locally brewed beer along with other American and international brews. From July 5th through July 7th, visitors can enjoy a variety of epic weekend activities including live music, damn good food and of course, beer!
2.) Seafair: August
Other festivals might be marketed solely towards tourists, but the Seattle Seafair is for the natives! This month long celebration brings locals back to their nautical roots, holding shipping in high esteem. There are many events throughout the month, but the grand finale is the big boat race on Lake Washington.
3.) UFC Event – Johnson vs Moraga: July 27
Who doesn’t enjoy a good battle royal? This summer, Seattle will be the epicenter for an awesome UFC event. Watch Demetrious Johnson defend his Flyweight Championship title against John Moraga at the Key Arena. Buy tickets online or you can also win UFC tickets courtesy of PokerListings’ Competition of the Month.
4.) Bite of Seattle July 19-21
Have a little bit of everything by sampling dishes from over 60 of Seattle’s best restaurants. For three days nibble on dishes ranging from local farm fresh foods to ethnic delights. It’s certainly an event that won’t leave you hungry. Bite of Seattle also has several concerts so you can dance off some of that extra calories!
