JD features a street fair, live music, car show, parade, kids center, robotics, carnival and this year local businesses, bars, and restaurants along 16th Ave SW will be extending their services out to the sidewalk, while arts and crafts vendors set up their tents in the street. Additional food vendors will be on hand to feed the crowds. On Saturday there will be a car show presented by the Eazy Duz It Car Club. Sunday will see the return of the annual parade, featuring the Wheels of Boom, notable Seafair personalities, the Unofficial Official Mayor of White Center, Geoffrey “Mac” McElroy/ A kids area that fills the street for an entire block will be active both days of the event. In a change from past Jubilee Days, the board has brought on event producers Oliver Little of Monumental Undertaking and Sara Green Williams of Match + Gasoline to manage the street fair, main stage, and beer garden elements of the festival. In addition to having extensive event production experience (West Seattle Summer Fest, Georgetown Carnival, Rat City Recon, and much more), both are local residents with strong ties to the community.
