RV Heritage Parade & Summer Streets Party

Saturday, August 21 from 11am to 3pm

The Rainier Valley Heritage Parade celebrates life in America's most diverse zip code — 98118! Summer Streets Party follows the parade — Rainier Avenue will be open for people to play, walk, bike, shop, dance, relax and eat from S Brandon to S Alaska!

About the event:

  • The parade happens every year (this the 18th year)
  • Summer Streets helps people imagine what life could be like if fewer people drove and more people walk, bike, ride transit and shop locally
  • People can walk, have picnics, practice sports, ride their bikes safely and without the noise of cars
