Seattle Events Calendar

July 2014

The summer season is in full swing, and there's lots to do. Seattle Events Calendar July includes bike tours, wine tasting events, Bite of Seattle and more.

Seafair is a month-long festival that kicks off with the Rock and Roll Marathon in June and includes events such as fun runs, a milk carton derby, and a real pirates' landing on Alki Beach. It ends with the hydroplane races and air show in August. For more that 60 years it's been a summer tradition in Seattle.

See the Fourth of July page for Independence Day activities.
