Along the brick-lined streets of Pioneer Square, something’s brewing: Pioneer Square Fest. The two-day festival organized by the Pioneer Square Market Network is taking over the neighborhood with tons of local musicians, vendors, and talent.

The revelry will spread across three main venues: Occidental Square, Central Saloon, and the recently opened Baba Yaga. Come through to check out sets from experimental DIY rockers Flesh Produce, hardcore pop vocalist and songwriter TezaTalks, psychedelic indie rock act Peyote Ugly, and singer-songwriter Shaina Shepherd, as well as DJ sets from the likes of Wax Witch/RepoMan and Sugar Pea. On Saturday, there’ll be an art market in Occidental Square and other store fronts around the neighborhood.

The fest also encourages attendees to dine in Pioneer Square establishments like Ohsun Banchan, Cookies Country Chicken, and Nirmals, with ticket holders enjoying perks like discounted food and drink at participating stores. Though Central Saloon and Baba Yaga will be ticketed, the Occidental Square stage is free for all.
