SalmonFest Seattle

SalmonFest Seattle sets its roots deep in the history of Seattle summer festivals, and for most of its 72 years was known as Lake City Pioneer Days. The original residents of this northeastern corner of the city held local summer gatherings where neighbors sold their quilts, jams and preserves on the sidewalk, games were staged for the kids and the crowds feasted together. It began as the Lake City Summer Festival but was changed to the Lake City Pioneer Days in 1947. The proceeds from that festival were donated to the Boys Club by the Lions Club, The Commercial Club and the Eagles Lodge. Six months after that the Commercial Club became known as the Lake City Chamber of Commerce which today is still part of the tradition.

    I work in the Member Auto Travel Department at the Magnolia/Interbay area AAA and I was wondering if we could get about 15 of the little comunity maps for your area if you have them. I get requests from Members for maps of your area and I only have the large Seattle map that is great. But some times the little walking bussines map would be better.
    Thank you

    My daughters (12 & 14) have sold their homemade crafts at a couple local craft fairs this summer. They are interested in being vendors at your Pioneer Days street fair. They sell homemade cards and hand crafted jewelry (completely done by them.) However the entry fee (even the non-profit cost) is prohibitive for them (as they pay for it themselves.) We would like to know if you would allow them to have a table as a ‘youth vendor’ which tends to be considerably less – usually $20-$25 or less. They would greatly appreciate the ability to sell at your street fair.
    Thanks for your consideration,
    Patricia Samyn
