The New Waterfront Festival will bring live music back to Seattle’s waterfront in a big way.
Performers during the six-hour festival from 2 to 8 p.m. Oct. 4 at Waterfront Park include Vaudeville Etiquette, Geoffrey Castle, Wanz, ChebonChebon, McTuff and Stephanie Anne Johnson.
The festival boasts an historic first: Vaudeville Etiquette will perform a synchronized light show at 7 p.m. at the foot of the neon-lighted Great Wheel. The Seattle group’s sound encompasses roots-rock, country, jazz and blues.
Fisherman’s Restaurant will provide a salmon bake, and Highway 99 Blues Club will serve Cajun dishes. Family activities, vendors, performance art will be included.
The New Waterfront Festival is a collaborative event made possible by the City of Seattle, waterfront businesses, nonprofits and independent community groups. The purpose of the festival, aside from providing a day of family oriented entertainment, is to increase awareness and support for waterfront businesses during construction of the seawall through the fall of 2014 and the winter of 2015.
