It’s the month for festivals: the Redmond Sunfest is this weekend, July 21st and 22nd. It opens at 4pm Friday, until 10, and 8am Saturday (also until 10). It’s free, and there will be free live music, vendors, food, wine and beer, a children’s area, and more.
Located in Downtown Redmond on 7th Street and Evergreen, in the Redmond Plaza adjacent to the Chamber building, this fun filled weekend will feature a variety of live music and stage performers, the "Rock Chuck Ramble" fun run, a pancake breakfast, artists and crafters from around the Northwest as well as the SELCO Community Credit Union children’s area and a Downtown Discovery Hunt where child participants are given a "treasure" map to follow that takes them to local retail locations to collect "treasure" (a token charm to make a bracelet.) The greatest aspect to Redmond Sunfest is that it offers something for everyone to do.
The event was created as a way to bring the community of Redmond together and raise funds for the non profit Redmond Arts Foundation which works towards sustaining art in public places throughout Redmond. The event still supports the Redmond Arts foundation and a portion of the events proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
Sounds like fun, and it’s (mostly) free—if you enjoyed SummerFest last weekend, you’ll enjoy this.
