Lakewood SummerFEST


FREE family fun. LIVE entertainment.

• Fort Steilacoom Park • 11am - 10pm • Free Family Fun • Saturday July 20, 2024 •

Lakewood’s SummerFEST 2024 is the South Sound's not-to-be-missed summer celebration with something fun for everyone.

SummerFEST has it all: food trucks, beer gardens, live music, fire dancers, a pop-up skate park, a car show, a balloon glow, a drone show, and interactive sports and arts for all ages. If you’re coming in from out of town, reserve your hotel room in advance. Even if you’re a local, it’s a good idea to head to Fort Steilacoom Park early to nab the best free parking!
