Happy 20th birthday, Troll!



Trolloween, the yearly event that celebrates the birth of the Fremont Troll, is expected to bring out hundreds of performers and people on Halloween night (that’s tomorrow!)  This is a photo of what last year’s celebration looked like.  (Thanks to Marcus for the picture.)


This year marks the Troll’s 20th birthday, and in celebration of the day, this year’s theme will be Dante’s Inferno.  Rain or not, everyone is invited to join in the merriment through Fremont that begins at the Troll at 7:00 p.m.  Following the procession, there will be an aerial dance performance of Daedalus by the Cabiri.  If it’s raining, the show will take place under the Fremont Bridge.  If not, they’ll be in the lot across from Theo Chocolate.

Seattle Police Department will be escorting this year’s parade, which starts under the Aurora Bridge at the Troll (N. 36th St. and Troll Ave N.)  From there, the route looks like this:

The “Haunt of Fremont” heads west on 36th to Evanston Avenue N; south on Evanston to N 35th Street; west on 35th to First Avenue NW; south on First Ave NW to N Canal Street (which is closed from First Ave NW to Phinney Avenue N for a performance of Dante’s Inferno); east on Canal to N 34th Street; east on 34th to Evanston; south on Evanston to private street; east on private street to the Fremont Bridge.

These streets will be closed on Saturday for Trolloween:

  • 3:00-10:00 p.m. – N. Canal St. between 1st Ave NW and Phinney Ave N.
  • 4:30-8:00 p.m. – N. 36th St. adjacent to the Troll between Linden Ave N. and Whitman Ave N.
