Looking for some summer fun on a budget? If you’ve never been to the annual Morgan Junction Community Festival, you owe it to yourself to go and check it out. It’s so intimate they don’t even block off the street traffic!
This is the 13th year for the Morgan Junction Community Festival produced by the Morgan Community Association (MoCA). It will be celebrated on Saturday, June 16th, starting at 10:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm. That’s right! Just one, short, summer afternoon to enjoy this “little festival that could.”
The festival is family-friendly, but has something for everyone. Check out the local vendor booths which include some unusual products and services. These are folks you’ll want to support.
This year’s festival will feature live music, kid’s entertainment and activities, commercial vendor and community informational booths, and food vendors. The festival takes place in and around Morgan Junction Park, with the apex at California Avenue SW and SW Fauntleroy.
MORGAN JUNCTION COMMUNITY FESTIVAL JUNE 22ND, 2013
Summertime is just around the corner, and with it comes a number of community festivals and street fairs. First up in West Seattle is the Morgan Junction Community Festival from 10:30A-7P Saturday, June 22nd. I call this “the little festival that could.” It offers all the usual suspects: live music, vendor booths, children’s activities, plus “Bite of Morgan”. This year there will also be food trucks and The Bark of Morgan! You can wander through this fun and very intimate festival in less time than it takes to mow your lawn, and most of the activities are free. Rapid Ride will drop you off right in the center of the festivities at the intersection of California and Fauntleroy. I will be there staffing a booth to collect food for White Center Food Bank.

Morgan Junction Community Festival: “the little festival that could”
During the summertime in Seattle you can find a festival on one street corner or another nearly every weekend. One of the smaller festivals is the Morgan Junction Community Festival, this year on Saturday, June 23rd from 10:30A-7P.
This is the 4th year in a row that I will have a booth at the festival with information about my group, Savvy Seattle Women: A Network for Homeowners and Aspiring Homeowners. I love the friendly, low-key atmosphere and the manageable crowd size. The center point for the Morgan Junction Community Festival is actually the intersection of California Ave SW and Fauntleroy Way. But you don’t need to avoid driving through the Junction during the festival — the powers-that-be don’t even shut down the intersection during the event! Cars, bicycles and people all co-exist harmoniously as we celebrate the neighborhood.
Vendor booths (also quite low-key) are located in the parking lot behind Zeeks, Feedback Lounge and Washington Federal. Activities for the kids are hosted in the Washington Federal parking lot and Morgan Junction Park. Live music provides a sound track from the Beveridge Place Pub Parking Lot. Then there is the progressive treat known as “Bite of Morgan” hosted at various eating establishments throughout the Junction. Just pick up your booklet full of coupons to get your free bites.
Mark your calendar now and make a note to come visit me at the festival. I’m sure to be giving away something good 🙂
