The Fremont Fair

The Fremont Fair celebrates its 43rd year this month and we can’t wait to be a part of it! One of Seattle’s most beloved and longstanding festivals, the Fremont Fair is the culmination of three events: (1) the Solstice Fair, (2) the Solstice Parade and (3) the Solstice Concert Series. Adhering to the neighbourhood’s all but official motto, deliberates quirkas, meaning “the freedom to be peculiar”, the weekend is jam packed with music, crafts, tasty food and time spent outdoors!

We’ll be at the fair on June 22, giving away free Storrage containers and showing you how to use our awesome app! Come say hi and get ready to expand your living space.

Here are our top picks for the weekend:

  • Seattle Art Car Blowout: over 75 cars and “cartists” from all over the US and Canada come together to celebrate the wacky, weird and fantastic world of art cars. From cool paint jobs, to serious mods, this portion of the Fair will make you re-think your ride! Look out for a car made from from dentures, aptly titled CrewBaru.
  • Food: no street fest is complete without an endless array of food trucks, stands and vendors serving both traditional fair-food like, curly fries and elephant ears and more interesting eats from venders like, Olympic Farmer’s Market staple, Jawa Gourmet Nut Roasters and Gluten Free Bakery, Nuflours.
  • Tacocat: a mix of 60’s surf rock and 90’s pop-punk, Seattle favourites are taking the stage alongside, The Young Evils, Campfire Ok & Built to Spill. The foursome take the stage on Friday at 6:45pm on the Redhook MainStage.

Customer Story: Meet Storrage User Melissa and Learn About Her Life In Seattle

“Things in the house that didn’t have a “home” before, now have a place to live.“ – Melissa, Storrage Customer

We talked to Melissa from Queen Anne about her experience with Storrage. Read on to learn more!

Describe your experience using the Storrage App.

“Getting started couldn’t have been any easier. I simply downloaded the app, entered my info, hit “request”, selected the number of boxes, picked a time and they were delivered a day later.“

What items did you put into Storrage?

“I put some things I use frequently, but am not currently using. Things like, computer equipment, cables, boxes, DVDs, CDs, books, seasonal items, hats, off-season clothes and crafts. Storing these things helped me to free up almost all of my drawer space, which helps me feel a lot less cluttered. Things in the house that didn’t have a “home” before, now have a place to live. I’m more relaxed because there’s less clutter and my small, one-bedroom apartment doesn’t feel as cramped.“

What are you favourite Seattle activities in the summer and how has Storrage helped you to enjoy them?

“I love outdoor festivals, shopping, dinner and drinks on patios and being out on the water. In the city, i spend Sunday mornings at Pike Place Market soaking in the lovely smells and buying groceries, and then over to Fremont Market to shop for antiques! One of the things I’ve noticed, is that coming home from a trip is easier. I have a place for my suitcase, and more room in my closet for any new clothes or shoes I’ve bought. At the end of the day, I just feel more relaxed knowing things are in order.”

Would you recommend Storrage to your friends and family?

“I would definitely recommend Storrage to my friends and family – and i already have! It really makes sense for people who live in the city, have a small car or no car, and want the convenience of not having to lug everything into a storage unit. It’s cheaper and easier. I’m definitely more of a minimalist and any type of clutter annoys me in my day-to-day living. It’s so great to be able to open a drawer and have things organized, or look under the bed and finally not see those things that shouldn’t be there.

I love that I don’t feel tied to my home. I don’t feel the need to “clean out” things, or de-clutter as much as before – everything has a place.”
