Seattle is a great city for fun summer events, and while many of them are very affordable, it’s so much better when they’re free! The Olympic Sculpture Park is the setting for fun free events every Thursday and Saturday through September 3rd, under their “Summer at SAM” program.

The program kicked off last week, with live music from The New Triumph, The Mighty Mockingbirds, Peace & Red Velvet, and DJ Toya B, as well as art making, tours, food trucks and more. Thursdays through July and August will be similar, with live music performances, themed art projects, tours, food truck offerings, wine and dinner from TASTE and a kids corner from 6 – 8 p.m. each Thursday, July 20th and 27th, and August 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st. This Thursday, July 20th is Member Appreciation night with giveaways from card-carrying SAM members.

Saturday, July 15th was the first weekend day of the Summer at SAM program, and set the tone for how all of the other Saturdays this summer will look. Each week, there will be an offering of free fitness classes for all levels, as well as art engagement opportunities and park tours. The schedule is Vinyasa Flow Yoga from 9 – 10 a.m., Hatha Yoga from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., SAM Creates from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., a Public Tour at 1 p.m. and Zumba from 2 – 3 p.m. This part of the program is on Saturdays July 22nd and 29th, and August 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. Next Saturday, July 29th is Family Field Day, with special community partner activities for the whole family.
