June

Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market

Ah yes, the smell of fresh fruit and veggies and the occasional salt water draft, there’s nothing like the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market! And yes, the market is open for in-person visitation this summer! Not only will you find plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables that you can’t find in the store, you’ll also get live music, a look at the local arts scene and tons of friendly people having a good time along Puget Sound. And the best part: this event lasts all summer long! 

Father’s Day Events

There’s plenty to see and do with dad this Father’s Day. Plenty of Seattle Southside restaurants offer special dinner/brunch deals and Foster Golf Links is open to the public! Not to mention, all our local parks are open to explore so don't be afraid to get outdoors and enjoy some quality time with dad.

Shelter-In-Place Season at the Burien Actors Theatre

You might not be able to go to the theatre this year, but you can still watch a show from the comfort of your own home with the Burien Actors Theatre! With just a small donation, you can tune in and enjoy the show via Zoom. These performances range from scary, to inspiring, to hilarious and truly amazing. Don't miss them!
