Ad Information

Like Seattle, The Stranger is decidedly independent.
We offer a perspective on the topics that matter most to the people who live, work, and play in Seattle. Our original news reporting has won the highest journalism awards and has made profound changes to our city. Our smart, authoritative entertainment coverage sets the tone for the city's cultural conversation. And our innovative, comprehensive calendar, Things To Do, is Seattle's most popular and trusted source of event information in the region.

The Stranger reaches a large audience.
Stranger readers are affluent urbanites in their 20s and 30s with impressive disposable incomes and an appetite for everything the city has to offer. Our readers DO THINGS: They're the ones out on the town, eating and drinking, seeing music and art, voting, and buying local. Advertising in one of The Stranger's many targeted local media products is the easiest and most effective way to reach the most active consumers in the fastest growing city in America.
