It’s Smokey Bear’s 75th birthday, and local outfitter Filson is celebrating the iconic bear’s work preventing wildfires with a new line of Smokey Bear gear and two Seattle parties.
The Aug. 10 event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Filson Flagship in Sodo, will include a s’mores bar by Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery, free coffee, giveaways and a kids coloring station. There will be free limited-edition Smokey patches, bandanas and koozies while supplies last (get there early).
The Aug. 17 event, from 2–6 p.m. at the C.C. Filson Store in Ballard, will have Smokey cocktails and beer, plus free bandanas live screenprinted on-site by Ink Knife Press, while supplies last.
You can find all of Filson’s Smokey Bear gear at the events and at filson.com. Scroll through the slideshow above for a sneak peek at the items.
