att Seattle Fiestas Patrias 2019

2019 Theme: Building Bridges

South Park: September 14
Seattle Center: September 14-15



Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias, presented by Sea Mar Community Health Centers, is a celebration of Latino culture, with two festivals hosted in the small, but lively neighborhood of South Park and Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle. Both festivals are celebrated during one weekend in mid-September every year to commemorate the national independence days of many Latin American countries.

On Saturday, the South Park community can enjoy a fun-filled parade with the whole family and continue the celebration at the community festival with traditional performances, delicious food, health fair and more. On Saturday and Sunday, Seattle downtown locals and visitors can find traditional Latin American music, dance, food, art exhibitions, health fair and more throughout the Seattle Center campus.

Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias in South Park and Seattle Center are free and open to the public.


The 2019 “Building Bridges” highlights Sea Mar’s ongoing efforts in connecting the Latino community and all underserved communities with much-needed resources to improve their health, as well as connecting outside organizations, groups and individuals to learn more about the Sea Mar experience and Latino culture.

We invite you to cross the bridge with us by attending 2019 Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias this year at South Park on September 14 and Seattle Center on September 14 -15!
