2018’s White Center Jubilee Days brings some changes to the Jubilee Days format. This year’s Jubilee Days will kick off with a block party on Friday evening from 7-11pm. While the crew works hard to get things set up for Saturday’s fun, 16th Ave SW will be closed between SW Roxbury and SW 100th Streets for the community to get out and enjoy themselves. Local bars and restaurants will have outdoor service areas, there will be live music at several local venues, and we’ll elect the Unofficial Official Mayor of White Center!
On Saturday, the Eazy Duz It Car Club will roll onto 17th Ave SW to host the Jubilee Days car show and show off some incredible works of car art, 16th Ave SW will have the Main Stage and Beer Garden, Community Stage, and Street Fair, the Wide World of Kids and Detective Cookie’s Chess Program will be ready to entertain, there will be a Scavenger Hunt with prizes, and more!
On Sunday, and annual parade will march down 16th Ave SW, culminating in parade awards and a post-parade party at Viva Mexico!

Free shuttle to/from carnival and the downtown White Center area will be provided Saturday and Sunday (July 21-22).
*Steve Cox Park is installing a new artificial turf field with construction beginning on July 1. The carnival will not be able to use the park as a location moving forward because they can’t set up on the artificial turf. There will not be fireworks this year due to the construction, as well. Big thanks to the Highline School District for helping us find a new location for the carnival!
