Summer is the gift that just keeps on giving! If you’re planning a trip during the second half of August, then you’ll have plenty of fun events to look forward to. Coming up we have the return of a national icon to the stage, a chance to see one of rock’s most famous and influential bands, and everyone’s favourite summer excursion: a trip to the fair! Check out all the details below, and begin planning your trip to the Emerald City!
You all know Ellen DeGeneres from her hugely popular television show. Now, you’ll have the chance to see up close and in the flesh as she embarks on her first comedy tour in fifteen years. Her tour will only include three cities, one of which is beautiful Seattle! She’ll be performing at Benaroya Hall on August 22 and 23. Not to be missed!
Smashing Pumpkins are a band who need no introduction. A pioneering nineties band, they’ve left their mark on music history and then soon. They’ll be bringing their unique sound to Key Arena on August 24 for a tour that’ll include founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. One for the music lovers.
And finally, who doesn’t love a trip to the fair? It gets no bigger or better than the Washington State Fair! Taking place August 31 through to September 23, it’ll feature world-class rides, performers, food, and oh so much more. Especially recommended if you’re travelling with the kids in tow!
There’s only one place to stay during your trip to the city: the best hotel in Seattle! At the Best Western Plus Pioneer Square, you’ll receive well-appointed accommodations, and find amenities such as free high speed internet, a complimentary continental breakfast, a large television in every room.
