It’s also the first Movies at the Mural weekend, which kicks off with Princess Bride. And, if Shakespeare’s your thing, check out the family-friendly Backyard Bard double-feature at Rodgers Park on Saturday or the Seattle Shakespeare Company’s two shows on Sunday.

Heads up on traffic – not only will the I-90 reduction to one lane westbound begin on Friday, but the Bite of Seattle also kicks off at the Seattle Center with an estimated 40,000 attendees. And, looking forward to early next week, I-90 will still be a bottleneck and President Obama will also be in the area (Hunts Point on the Eastside) on Tuesday, July 22nd when the Mariners take the field at Safeco (7:10pm).

In the meantime, take your pick of summer events and have a great weekend!

If you have anything to submit to the Weekend Roundup, email us. You can also add your event to our calendar.

Traffic:

  • I-90 One Westbound Lane: reduced to one through lane at Bellevue Way SE and three lanes across the East Channel Bridge from 9:30pm Friday, July 18 to 5am Friday, July 25

Another busy summer weekend – from sports (Mariners, Storm, Reign) to celebrations (Pride Parade and PrideFest) to Seafair (pirates!) to traffic (Cher and Cyndi Lauper at Key Arena). If you’re looking for bargains, there’s a multi-block yard sale on Nob Hill Ave N, and if you’re looking for history, check out the annual Queen Anne Historical Society’s tour of Mt Pleasant Cemetery.

Weekend Roundup – On & Around Queen Anne

June 19th, 2014 by Laura

Kerry 0613 web

Summer is one of the busiest times for events and festivals, so we’re reviving the Weekend Roundup. Curious as to why we took a hiatus? We migrated to a new calendar, and no longer get push notifications, so the Weekend Roundup is very much a manual exercise.

However, if you have anything to submit to the Weekend Roundup, email us. You can also add your event to our new calendar. (You’ll be asked to sign up with for an account first.)

Now, on to the warning about travel on and around Queen Anne… This weekend brings the Fremont Fair to our north and the Rock’n’Roll Marathon to the base of Queen Anne Hill. The race begins and ends near the Seattle Center, so be prepared for many road closures that’ll add to the Mercer/Roy confusion.

Consider walking to your destination this Saturday.

Traffic:

  • Northbound 99: closed between the West Seattle Freeway and the Battery St. Tunnel Friday night to Monday morning
  • 520 bridge: fully closed, Friday night to Monday morning
  • Rock N Roll Marathon & Half Marathon, 7am-6pm, begins & ends at Seattle Center – see course map for traffic impacts. Streets near the Seattle Center, such as Mercer Street and 5th Ave N, will be closed from 2am Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon

Multi-Day Events:

Friday, June 20

Saturday, June 21
