Biggest Events In Seabrook This Summer

Seabrook really heats up during the summer months with outdoor concerts, street markets, and festivals. Not to mention friendly locals, miles of beautiful coastlines and a host of things to see and do. They don’t call it Washington’s Beach Town for nothing!

To help you get a jump-start on your vacation plans, here are highlights of some favorite activities taking place this summer at Seabrook. 

Sunset Concert Series

When the sun goes down the stars come out for the Seabrook Sunset Concert Series. Join us on Friday’s for FREE concerts all summer long at the Sunset Amphitheater located on Front Street. All shows begin at 7pm. Here is a list of performers:

Founders’ Day

Every summer on Founders’ Day we celebrate Seabrook’s birthday, this year marking the 14th year on the Washington coast. This year, Founders’ Day is Saturday, July 21.

Come celebrate with us via many outdoor adventures all weekend long. 

Sign-up for an amusing Bigfoot Poker Ride with Buck of Buck’s Bikes (7:30 a.m.) (Buck’s Northwest is now CLOSED)

Puruse and shop local vendors at our vibrant Saturday market where you can get local food, arts, crafts and other goods you can only find on the Washington coast (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

During the afternoon, youngsters will be treated to a special sandcastle-building workshop hosted by professional sandcarver Eric Hawley. With Eric’s help, your kids will learn how to work with sand and how to build awesome sandcastles. Eric will be centered around several tables with sand, bucks, shovels, kid-friendly carving tools, etc. so they can follow Eric’s lead, mimicing his larger version. This is what summer is all about (1 p.m. to 3 p.m.)

After your kids build amazing sandcastles, head down to the beach and take-in the WestCoast Waveriders “Big Air” Jet Ski Demonstration where these athletes will jump ocean waves and perform big air tricks including flips and jumps (beginning at 4 p.m.)

Next, make your way to Town Green Park in the SOMA District where your kids can meet the Waverider athletes in a meet-and-greet and enjoy amazing food from local food trucks (6 p.m.)

Founders’ Day is always one of the most active weekends in Seabrook each year. If you’re interested in brining your family out to Seabrook for Founders’ Day, begin your home search here or if you have any questions you can call us at 360-268-8006.
