If you’re visiting Seattle sometime this summer, congratulations, you’ve picked the right time to swing by.

Here in Seattle, a city renowned for being sun-ally challenged, we’re obsessed with making the most of the few warm months we have.

That means everyone is temporarily infused with a certain pep in their step, a certain lust for life, if you will.

So if you come to Seattle in July, August, or September, you’re catching us at our best.

We’re all outside together, and when we’re outside together, that means one thing.

Festivals.

Festivals, parties, celebrations, events of particular significance. You name it.

Here’s just a snippet of all the hoopla you can expect in Seattle this July.
