Here’s a comprehensive guide for potential Memorial Weekend celebrations. If you’re staying in the Seattle area, there’s a little something for everyone. Enjoy some cannabis, step out of your comfort zone and learn something new about Mexican culture, listen to some jazz or check out a foreign documentary. Or just go to Sasquatch and get turnt for the weekend with Vince Staples and Tyler the Creator, like I said, a little something for everyone.
Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF)
This festival is already going on and doesn’t end until June 10, so if you’re leaving over the weekend, don’t worry. This festival is now in its 44th year and is one of the largest foreign film festivals in the entire world. During a 25 day span, 400 films from 90 different countries will be shown for over 145,000 attendees. If you’re a film buff who is constantly complaining about remakes and superhero movies, this might be your opportunity to get some more culture out of your movie-going experience.
SIFF is also featuring a virtual reality exhibit where you can experience third-dimensional storytelling.

Memorial Weekend Boat Party
Party like you’re an extra in an early 2000’s Will Ferrell movie! The boat starts boarding at 9:30 and leaves at 10:30 with or without you, so show up early and get that pre-funk rocking. The boat in question is a yacht that features two dance floors. There’s a fully licensed bar and there is smoking permitted on the deck. Oceanic Entertainment is bringing Dj’s that will be playing you throwback hits, hip-hop, R&B, reggae, EDM mash-ups and your personal requests! After a cruise through Lake Union and Lake Washington, the boat will return at 1:30 am. There are only 212 spots available, so there’s a good chance this fills up quickly!
