Super Saturday Celebrates its 26th Year!

June 12, 2004

A Festival for All Ages
There'll be some fun events on Red Square!
Free and open to the public - 10 a.m.– 6 p.m

Super Saturday, one of the biggest one-day festivals in the state, marks its 26th year June 12 with a new emphasis on live music and entertainment for young and old. This year the theme is "Fun for All Ages" and features two-dozen live music performances, story telling for kids, and popular Super Saturday traditions such as the Evergreen Library used book sale, the Native Arts fair in the Longhouse and the "Greener Oasis" for Evergreen alumni and friends.

The Evergreen State College began hosting Super Saturday in 1978 as a way to thank the community for its support and have some fun on graduation weekend. The popular event attracts 25,000 to its mix of entertainment, handmade arts and crafts and international foods and flavors. Highlights this year include:

Express Transit Service makes getting to and from Super Saturday a breeze - take the bus! Relax and let Intercity Transit do the driving. Shuttles leave every 10 minutes (10 a.m.-6:30 p.m.) from Westfield Shoppingtown Capital Mall between Best Buy and J.C. Penney. Regular rates apply.
