Since 2002

Wednesday, August 14

Over 20 years ago when the idea was hatched to replace Brierfest, the Park Board, got creative and developed this festival centered around the business core of Brier.  

Join us as the people and sea creatures of Brier get together for a casual evening of fun. Gather the kids on your block and enter the parade - the theme is scary sea creatures, octopi, pirates, boats, nautical or any sea related idea.

All kids, classic car owners and anyone with a great parade idea are encouraged to participate. 

Note: Brier Road will close to traffic at 6:00 pm on the day of the event from 238th to 228th. Detour routes will be available.

Featuring a petty zoo, bouncy house and carnival games - don't let the kids miss it! Plus an ice cream truck.

A "Jolly Roger". Don't know what one is:

Jol-ly Rog-er
Function: noun
Date: circa 1785
A black flag with a white skull and crossbones formerly used by pirates as their ensign

Be sure to design your own special flag (Jolly Roger) for your group in the parade! Here's a sample of a Jolly Roger.

This year the parade will again feature a variety of entertaining participants, local classic cars, race cars and a couple bands including the Kenmore and District Pipe Band. There will be our favorite usual entrants and anyone else interested in joining the fun. 

Brier Salmon Derby Sponsored by the Fish Market at QFC - Look for a staff member and get a FREE ticket to the drawing for the big fish.

Must be present to win, drawing will be held right after the parade - down by Jason's Java at the announcement booth.
