I’ve lived the vast majority of my life in this region, yet I still find long-standing, recurring events that I’ve never heard of. Here’s one: Festa Italiana. Part of the Seattle Center’s grand array of cultural events, celebrating the multitude of cultures converging in Seattle.
Starting on Friday the 27th with the Taste of Italy, followed by the actual Annual Italian Festival on Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th. The website has all the details.
My favorite part: starting at 3;30 pm on Sunday, the Spectrum Chamber Players will present a selection of classical Italian pieces. That is worth your time all on its own. Add the grape-stomping, book-signings, wine-tastings…quite a comprehensive list of things to experience.
