41st Annual Fremont Fair, Solstice Parade Return June 16-17

By Sean Keeley · January 12th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Coinciding with the Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade, the 41st Annual Fremont Fair will take place June 16th and 17th this year.

A collection of performances by local bands, arts and crafts shopping, food and drink, artistic expression and fun for young and old – all coming together to celebrate Fremont’s “delibertas quirkas” culture, the Fair is one of Fremont’s can’t-miss attractions every year.

The Fremont Arts Council’s Solstice Parade will kick things off at noon on Saturday, June 16. Claim your spot early, the event annually draws over 50,000 spectators to cheer on the floats, wacky characters and, of course, painted nude bicyclists.

Sunday, June 17, is Dads and Dogs Day at the Fair, featuring a pup parade. Humans can join in too so long as it’s cool with their pooch.

There’s also the Fremont Beer Garden, Seattle Art Car Blowout and four performance stages.

Fremont Fair is a benefit for Solid Ground, a local poverty-focused nonprofit who produced the Fair for nearly 40 years. The remaining funds collected in the beer gardens and onsite donation boxes go into the Fremont Chamber of Commerce’s grants program and are awarded to non-profits to fund projects that benefit the Fremont community.
