WHITE CENTER JUBILEE DAYS EVOLVES:
2018’s White Center Jubilee Days brings some changes to the Jubilee Days format. This year’s Jubilee Days will kick off with a block party on Friday evening (July 20) from 7-11 p.m. While the crew works hard to get things set up for Saturday’s fun, 16th Ave SW will be closed between SW Roxbury and SW 100th Streets for the community to get out and enjoy themselves. Local bars and restaurants will have outdoor service areas, there will be live music at several local venues, and we’ll elect the Unofficial Official Mayor of White Center!

On Saturday, the Eazy Duz It Car Club will roll onto 17th Ave SW to host the Jubilee Days car show and show off some incredible works of car art, 16th Ave SW will have the Main Stage and Beer Garden, Community Stage, and Street Fair, the Wide World of Kids and Detective Cookie’s Chess Program will be ready to entertain, there will be a Scavenger Hunt with prizes, and more!

On Sunday, and annual parade will march down 16th Ave SW, culminating in parade awards and a post-parade party at Viva Mexico!

    I look forward to participating at your event. I will have several chess boards setup and anybody is welcome to have a seat and play a game of chess.

    I know you cant book Hell’s Bell’s every year, but come on…Last years talent wasn’t great. Also, I don’t mind the change in the beer garden location, but last year there where maybe a dozen high top table and no seating! It was a few groups of people standing up under a fairly small tent to shade the sun (it was in the high 80’s last year on my Saturday mid afternoon visit). It seemed like a very sterile environment compared to past years and not in a good way….Let’s get some seating in the beer garden at least…shaded or not.
