Seattle in September means we’re back to rain, but don’t start hibernating yet! There are plenty of great options for fun both outside and in. If it rains, take the opportunity to watch some great films directed by women. And it looks like we’re all in luck and the sun will make its way back just in time for Art Walk, Night Market, and a whole slew of festivals…
Personally, I’ve got my eye out for great events to bring a baby to (I should have a new little person to entertain any day now!), and music‘s a perfect choice. Here are all of my top picks for the best things to do in Seattle this month:
The Autumn Moon Festival is an outdoor international market with local wares, dance and offering up a wealth of food from both restaurants in the International District and 30 participating food trucks. The Night Market goes until midnight!
September has some great options: Fiestas Patrias, Live Aloha and Festa Italiana. Fiestas Patrias is a celebration of Latino heritage at Seattle Center and in the (historically Latino) South Park neighborhood. Live Aloha is a family-friendly Hawaiian party. Festa Italiana has music food, and even a grape stomp! You don’t even have to choose between celebrating Latino, Hawaiian or Italian. You can hit all of them!
Music!: There’s a lot of great music from around the world in Seattle this month. Make sure to get your kids into it by taking them to see Tembembe Ensamble Continuo. Kids should get started with good music early, and the Early Music Guild is a great way to do it! Where else do you get to see a band from Cuernavaca give you their take on Baroque music?
You’ll find even more things to do this month on the Seattle Globalist events calendar! Have an event to share? Are we missing something dazzling near you? It’s easy to submit your own Globalist event online. We’ll see you around town, as we share the best of the world, right here at home!
