2016 Parade Map

One of our city’s most eclectic traditions happens this Saturday: the Fremont Solstice Parade and its naked bicyclists! This event is pure Fremont, and, as with most things that build community among neighbors and neighborhoods—we love it!

Saturday, June 18

2:30 pm: Street closure along the route
2:45 pm: Solstice Cyclist Ride begins
3:00 pm: Parade begins

The Solstice Cyclists will be body-painted and costumed, but missing most (or all) of their clothing. Full nudity is expected, so keep that in mind. As the Fremont Arts Council explains, “The Parade is not a nudist event, it is an Art event that recognizes the human body as a canvas and the joy of riding as a part of our community’s creative expression. When you come to watch the parade, you will be witnessing a right of passage for many Seattlites, and for many people from all over the globe. Respect and Celebration is the main vibe.”

There’s much more to this parade than the cyclists. We found the whole parade lineup and included below. It’s looking to be a good day for it (mostly sunny, highs in the 60s), so keep an eye out for us! Not on the bicycles, though. We don’t love this tradition that much.
