    Arts on the Waterfront and Romeo and Juliet on the Waterfront

    Art, Music, and Theater live on the waterfront. FREE.

    There has been a tangible lack of free music and arts shows in the heart of downtown Seattle since the historic Summer Nights at the Pier concert series was shut down ten years ago. But this year your wishes have been granted in this year’s summer festival Arts on the Waterfront. As a kick-off before the July opening of the new 175-foot-high Ferris wheel at the same...

    There has been a tangible lack of free music and arts shows in the heart of downtown Seattle since the historic Summer Nights at the Pier concert series was shut down ten years ago. But this year your wishes have been granted in this year’s summer festival Arts on the Waterfront. As a kick-off before the July opening of the new 175-foot-high Ferris wheel at the same location, this event will surely bring life to the Waterfront.

    Arts on the Waterfront’s all ages event will be located next door to the Seattle Aquarium and blocks west of the Seattle Art Museum. Buy local produce at the Pike Place Market and enjoy it next door to the Aquarium while watching free public theater followed by live music and moonlit dancing. There will be performances by local bands SolBird, The Horse Thieves, Country Lips, Fortune Dwellers and more for you moonlit lovers to dance the night away under the stars and over the sound.

    Arts on the Waterfront’s stunning production of Romeo and Juliet takes a young urban Seattle scene and turns the conventions of storytelling upside down. This edgy retelling starts at 7:00pm using Puget Sound, the sunset, and the pier as its backdrop. Accompanied by hard-rock-Cellist Brandon Smith.

    Art will be displayed before and after the show on the pier by a dozen local artists. This “starlit dance party” of theater events might just be the don’t-miss event of the summer.

    And remember the production and event are free and all donations and proceeds go to benefit The Trevor Project: Saving young lives. Find out more at www.thetrevorproject.com.
