Join us on July 31st for the 44th annual Seafair Torchlight Run. Starting and finishing in the shadow of the Space Needle, participants of all ages will don their most creative costumes (we're always partial to pirates and clowns!) as they take on the 8K or 5K route through downtown Seattle along the Torchlight Parade Route. You won't find another race like this with thousands of eager parade spectators lining the streets cheering you on!
Since 1950, nothing has been more synonymous with summer in Seattle than Seafair. Before the Seahawks and Mariners called Seattle home, before the 1962 World’s Fair that gave us the iconic Space Needle, Seattle celebrated Seafair. Today, the non-profit Seafair has grown into a multi-week festival with events across the Puget Sound touching more than two million people. Times may have changed since its inception, but the core values of Seafair remains dedicated to being a volunteer and community - driven festival and a catalyst for creating events and experiences that celebrate the best parts of living here.
Seafair’s Signature Events include:
Seafair Summer 4th
Seafair Pirates Landing
Milk Carton Derby
Seafair Triathlon & Kids Tri
Seafair Torchlight Parade
Seafair Fleet Week
Seafair Weekend Festival
In addition to Seafair’s signature events, Seafair supports dozens of local community events throughout the region.
