Duwamish River Festival

Did you know that Seattle’s beautiful Duwamish River is actually a Superfund Site due to industrialization in the area and decades of dumping and pollution? Oh, and it’s the ancestral land of the Duwamish First Nations.

Seattle Deconstructed Art Fair

The Deconstructed Art Fair is the substitute for the larger Seattle Art Fair which draws local, national, and international galleries.

In fact, this year there are over 50 galleries participating and you can visit them all on your own time online and in person.
