The Seattle Outdoor Theater Festival returns to Volunteer Park on July 13 and 14, 2024!

SOTF has served as the unofficial launching pad for the Seattle’s summer outdoor theater season since 2001, and consists of multiple theatre companies coming together in one park to present a weekend of free theatre. We’re still working on this summer’s schedule for the festival, and we’ll post that info here as soon as possible.

Volunteer Park is located at 1247 15th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98112 – directions and more information about Volunteer Park

The Seattle Outdoor Theater Festival began in 2001 when GreenStage, Theater Schmeater, and Seattle Shakespeare’s Wooden O joined forces to bring a full weekend of live theatre to Volunteer Park in Seattle. Since then the festival has grown to include up to three stages and eighteen performances from several local theater companies. All in two days in one park… AND IT’S FREE!
