The Fremont Troll

Well known for its Summer Solstice Parade and Fair, the ongoing Sunday market, the infamous Troll under the bridge, and the Interurban statue by the Fremont Bridge.  Fremont is a community of unexpected and unconventional entertainment, wrought with bars and restaurants.  It has something for everyone and just a quick bus or car ride to downtown.

Located along the Ship Canal, Fremont stretches from Puget Sound to Lake Union.  With Ballard to the west, Phinney Ridge hugging the north and Wallingford to its east, Fremont is the center for artists and has been able to maintain the unique “funkiness” of early Seattle.

Annually, the Fremont Arts Council sponsors several highly attended events.  Most notable and famous is the Summer Solstice Parade & Pageant, the only nude cyclist parade left in the country!

The B .F. Day Elementary School is one reason Fremont is a desirable neighborhood for parents with young children.  B. F. Day, founded in 1892, is the longest continually operating school in the Seattle School district.

Fremont is also home to the Seattle offices of Adobe Systems, Google, and many other tech companies.
