Organizers of Seafair said Wednesday that it is canceling its major events this summer.
“Given the uncertainty surrounding public health safety, and combined with guidance from local and state governments, Seafair is rescheduling its major events to next year,” according to its website.
Ticket holders for any event will be contacted with an email soon.
Canceled events for this year include the Fourth of July celebration at Gas Works Park and Lake Union Park, the Milk Carton Derby, the Seafair Triathlon, Torchlight Run, Torchlight Parade, and Seafair Weekend Festival.
Organizers said on their website that the U.S. Navy Blue Angels are already confirmed for Aug. 6-8, 2021, and the Fourth of July fireworks show will be back next year as well, “bigger than ever.”
As of now, Seafair’s community events (Kla Ha Ya Days Festival, Seattle Bon Odori, etc., which are not produced by Seafair) are still going on as far as coordinators are aware, Patrick Harrison, director of marketing and communications for Seafair, said in an email Wednesday.
