Now celebrating its 48th consecutive year, the U District StreetFair is the longest running festival of its kind in the nation. In 1970, community leaders established the StreetFair to heal our community after protests, street riots, and violence disrupted the community.

Originally a blanket-vending event with lots of free live music, the U District StreetFair has developed into a regional event that features products that are hand-made by individual artists and craftsmen in the USA. In celebration of the international flavor of our community, we invite food vendors to participate along with our many local restaurants to supply an around-the-world food experience.


Each year we play host to some great entertainers and musicians from Seattle and all around the Northwest. Engaging street performers and local buskers will be keeping the streets alive with impromptu music, acts, and dancing throughout the weekend. We will also be showcasing up-and-coming artists and well-established bands on our stage, equipped with great sound systems and plenty of room for dancing. Click here to see the lineup.
