The festival has served as the unofficial launching pad for the Seattle’s summer outdoor theater season since 2001. After a two year absence, we’re excited to bring it back.

Volunteer Park has a new amphitheater! This project has been in the works for several years, and is finally finished just in time for the Seattle Outdoor Theater Festival!.

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 three stages and up to eighteen performances and ten local theater companies. All in two days in one park… AND ALL FREE!
