Syttende Gay came in to existence in 2006 as an event combining Seattle’s Nordic GLBT community and the annual celebration of Syttende Mai, Syttende Gay. This event celebrates five years, both in the spirit of cultural and GLBT diversity and in the past five years has evolved into an internationally promoted event with the help of local Ballard Blogs, International Blogs – My So Called Gay Life, Out Travel Magazine and Orbitz Travel. Syttende Gay is one of the many events under the auspices of Kwanchai.
In line with the last three years, we have the pleasure of hosting Syttende Gay 2010 at BalMar (5449 Ballard Ave NW off NW Market St, Seattle, WA ) with spectacular views of the parade.
The VIP Pass ($7) offers exclusive patio access for panoramic views of the parade, 10% off of inspired appetisers and cocktail specials, live with DJ RXMX and private bar.
