Seattle Art Car Blowout

June 17 – 19, 2011

Register for the Seattle Art Car Blowout online here

Please join us for the 14th annual Seattle Art Car Blowout held in the Center of the Universe during the Fremont Fair – Solstice Parade and Pageant, June 18th and 19th, 2011 (with an energy-packed kick-off party the night before, Friday June 17th).  We are talking succulent sustainable Seattle at its best!  You owe yourself this!

The Solstice Parade kicks off with hundreds of colorfully painted cyclists as over 100,000 citizens line the route!  Then the parade washes into a Craft Fair giddy with stilt-walkers, political activism, and life-affirming skits all non-toxically wrapped in a living ribbon of Giant Puppets, Colorful Human-Powered floats, Salsa Marching Bands and Belly Dancers!

You make the Seattle Art Car Blowout unique.  Register your intention to come!  Registration gets you:

  • Adulation of thousands
  • Friday kick-off at Kim & Steve’s fantastic shop: Close Enough Engineering
  • Reserved display space at the Fremont Fair from which you may vend (no fee)
  • Prime seating for Solstice Parade (Saturday 11 AM)
  • Saturday evening Salmon BBQ
  • Sunday morning Donut Joust and Art Car procession through Seattle
  • Accommodations in a hotel, spare bedroom, or better yet a comfy couch!
  • Up to 100% gas money reimbursement for out-of-towners
  • Closing night party at the NW’s testament to rock & roll, the Feedback Lounge


We reserve a huge parking lot for the Art Car Zone at the fair.  We want to feed you all weekend; so an accurate headcount is essential!  Please register ASAP!  We encourage you to Donate $25 or whatever you can afford, but please register now even if you don’t donate now.  If you cannot register online, then you can print and send your registration through the mail with an old fashioned check for $25.  You can mail us a check or use PayPal using the Donate button on this page and it is tax deductible!  We are a 501 c3 not-for-profit under the umbrella of the Fremont Arts Council.  If you’re financially strapped, don’t let that stop you.  We want every ArtCar to participate!  But you gotta register so we can make space to show off your unique vision to the world!  It’s your time to shine!


Join your tribe of fellow CARTISTS from around the country!  Come be inspired, admired and celebrated!  We look forward to seeing you and yours in person…


Yours truly,
