Each year we enjoy music, food, kids’ activities, interactive booths with information about Duwamish environmental issues, kayak and boat rides and bicycle repair workshops and more! Don’t miss the chance to celebrate the diverse communities that live along the Duwamish. The festival is FREE and is held at the Duwamish Waterway Park (7900 10th Ave. S) usually the last Saturday of August.
The annual Fiestas Patrias celebration reminds us that the spirit of freedom is indomitable and helps maintain a bond between Latinos in the Northwest and their home countries throughout the Americas.
