CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY FOR SEAFAIR AND SEATTLE
U.S. NAVY BLUE ANGELS RETURN FOR SEAFAIR IN 2021 & 2022

2021 will premiere their new Boeing jets for the first time in the Northwest

SEATTLE, WA – December 8, 2020 – The U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron announced today that they will once again return to the skies above Lake Washington as the featured performer at the Boeing Seafair Air Show this coming summer and again in 2022, August 5-7. The 2021 Boeing Seafair Air Show will take place during the Seafair Weekend Festival, August 6 – 8, on Lake Washington and will premiere their new jets – the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet.

“Seafair is thrilled to have the U.S. Navy Blue Angels back for another two years,” exclaimed Eric Corning, President & CEO of Seafair. “After a 2020 that saw so many events be put on hold, the community is looking forward to welcoming back a true tradition in the Pacific Northwest and the highlight of an action-packed Seafair Weekend Festival.”

As during the 2019 Seafair Weekend Festival, the flight box will remain the same, so the I-90 Bridge and Seward Park will remain open.

The Blue Angels’ mission is to enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts and to represent the naval service to the United States, its elected leadership, and foreign nations. The Blue Angels serve as positive role models and goodwill ambassadors for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.

2021 is the team's 75th anniversary. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have performed for nearly 500 million fans. A complete show schedule is available at www.blueangels.navy.mil. This will be the first time in 35 years that the team will be using new jets.

As Thanksgiving approaches next week, we wanted to pause and give thanks to our thousands of volunteers. Without each and every one of you, Seafair, and all of the memories that we create together for millions each year, would not be possible. Here's to our volunteers and to a strong return in 2021!

Take advantage of a tax deduction by the end of the year while helping this iconic organization into 2021.

When Seafair was created over 70 years ago, the sales of the Skipper pins help fund Seafair. Now, the non-profit Seafair has grown into a multi-week festival that touches over 2 million people, but sponsorship and ticket sales are not enough to cover the costs of producing such a large event. So, without ticket sales this year, we created several Seafair-branded items as thank you gifts for supporting us during this difficult time including hats, shirts, pull-overs, and a special 18k gold, limited-edition Skipper’s pin.

We need your support to help the non-profit Seafair continue to create memories and unite communities into 2021. Your support will help Seafair make memories for generations to come. As a non-profit organization, all contributions to Seafair are tax-deductible.

Since 1950, nothing has been more synonymous with summer in Seattle than Seafair. Before the Seahawks and Mariners called Seattle home, before the 1962 World’s Fair that gave us the iconic Space Needle, Seattle celebrated Seafair.

Today, the non-profit Seafair has grown into a multi-week festival with events across the Puget Sound touching more than two million people. Times may have changed since its inception, but the core values of Seafair remains dedicated to being a volunteer - driven festival and a catalyst for creating events and experiences that celebrate the best parts of living here.

Fast facts about Seafair: Going on 72 years. 6 Signature Events and 30+ Community Events. Over 3,000 amazing volunteers. Only 9 full-time staff (pre-COVID). The Seafair family is so looking forward to bringing the community together again... hopefully in the summer of 2021!

Have you heard about the Seafair collector’s edition 2020 18K Gold Pin?

When Seafair was created over 70 years ago, the sales of the skipper pins help fund Seafair. Now, the non-profit Seafair has grown into a multi-week festival that touches over 2 million people, but sponsorship and ticket sales are not enough to cover the costs of producing such a large event. So, without ticket sales this year, we created several Seafair-branded items as thank you gifts for supporting us during this difficult time including hats, shirts, and pull-overs. One popular item is our 2020 18k Gold Skipper Pin, celebrating 70 years of hydroplane racing at Seafair.

Be one of only 30 people to own what is sure to be a collector's item. We started with 50 and have already sold nearly half of the pins available. Each pin comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. Donate $1,000 to the non-profit Seafair and you'll receive a numbered gold pin as our thank you to you.

We need your support to help the non-profit Seafair continue to create memories and unite communities. Your support will help Seafair make memories for generations to come.

As organizers of the largest community summer events in Seattle, bringing millions of Northwesterners together, the 501c3 non-profit Seafair is resolved to be a volunteer-driven, and community-supported organization that creates memories and unites the Puget Sound Region.

Sponsorship and ticket sales are not enough to cover the costs of producing a multi-week festival that touches over 2 million people each year. We need your support to help the non-profit Seafair continue to create memories and unite communities.

Your support will help Seafair make memories for generations to come. Make sure to check out the Seafair branded gifts that we have for you at different levels as a thank you. As a non-profit organization, all contributions to Seafair are tax-deductible.

The last community that will have Seafair brought to them this summer is… RAINIER VALLEY! If you live in that area, be on the lookout for the Seafair caravan this Saturday morning including Alaska Airlines, the Clowns, Pirates, Commodores, Boat Club, Vintage Hydros, the Miss HomeStreet Bank Hydro, and other surprises… all lead by the Parade Marshals.

Unfortunately, we can’t leak out the actual route in advance due to current health precautions, but the caravan will be winding its way throughout the community all morning.

We wish we could have brought the Seafair caravan to all Western Washington communities, but we just couldn’t. Thank you to all the volunteers & Seafair families for pulling this together each week, it is a massive undertaking. A special thank you to iHeart Media Seattle for supporting this and for being such a great promotional partner. And a HUGE thank you to our fans that greeted us from your cars, front porches, and yards over the past few weeks, waving as we passed by. The Seafair family needed it just as much as you did. At a distance this year, but never apart. #SeafairIsSummer Boeing in Washington HomeStreet Bank Alaska Airlines KING 5 Capital One Café Amazon.com IHeartMedia Seattle
