2. Bite of Seattle - July 19-20
Started in 1982, The Bite has been an annual favorite of Seattleites, who venture downtown to the Seattle Center every July in search of the best food the city has to offer. That’s no easy task as this city is notorious for taking its food very seriously. This year, Groupon is helping the festival to sponsor and organize events, hosting 60 local restaurants, nine stages for live shows, and a number of cooking demos for you budding chefs out there. The whole thing is free, which is always a plus in our book.
