Believe it or not, Summer is almost at an end, though we hope the sunshine decides to stay a while! But, it ain’t over till it’s over, as they say, and there’s still lots of fun to be had, especially at the 4th annual Belltown Crush Block Party!
Belltown’s favorite summertime bash is going on this year at Bell Street Park and promises to be a blast!
Sip and savor your way through the festival while enjoying live tunes and don’t miss out on the grape stomping competition, to really get you into the spirit of the event and the summer. It’s a local favorite!
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 26th from 2-5PM. Advanced tickets are $25 with proceeds going to benefit Plymouth Housing Group.
Summer in Seattle means fine weather, fun times and fabulous festivals. One such festival is right around the corner- the Belltown Crush Block Party!
This Seattle summer favorite event has grown to two blocks this year (from 2nd and Bell up to 4th and Bell) and will feature up to 25 local urban breweries and wineries as well as wineries from featured guest region, the Cascade Valley Wine Country. There will even be an onsite bottle shop to take home your favorites!
In addition to the abundant locally crafted libations, enjoy delectable bites from terrific local food trucks and a pig roast from Bell & Whete.
Sip and savor your way through the festival while enjoying live tunes from Belltown Beats and a Steel Drum duo, and don’t miss out on the grape stomping competition, to really get you into the spirit of the event and the summer. It’s a local favorite!
The summer concert series has been providing Downtown Seattle workers a much needed excuse to get outside and hear great music from notable Seattle musicians. It’s a great lunch break and the best part is the concert series is completely free!
If you are not in the downtown area and still want to catch the concert, parking is convenient (and reasonable too) thanks to DowntownSeattleParking.com, which shows where to find the cheapest garage rates. Awesome!
Come get some sunshine and celebrate Seattle music!
Seattle Hempfest is the world’s largest annual marijuana protest event. This weekend from August 15th-17th marks the festival’s 23rd year in the city, with the rally taking over three waterfront parks—Myrtle Edwards, Centennial, and the Olympic Sculpture Park. Hempfest will feature speakers, live music, art, political booths, and plenty of food.
Hempfest is “founded on the belief that the public is better served when citizens and public officials work cooperatively in order to successfully accomplish common goals.” Its objective is “to educate the public on the myriad of potential benefits offered by the Cabbabis plant…Seattle Hempfest seeks to advance the cause of Cannabis policy reform through education, while advancing the public image of the Cannabis advocate or enthusiast through example.”
New to the event this year will be two fenced-off 21-and-over adult lounges, otherwise known as ‘pot gardens.’ This will be an opportunity for people to legally use marijuana in a city park, which is historic in that it’s never been done before in Seattle or the United States.
Volunteers, event organizers and attendees are already getting ready for this weekend’s events. Preparations are underway around Myrtle Edwards Park—take a look behind the scenes at the first glimpses of 2014 Hempfest!
If it seems like summer is whizzing by, you can take a deep breath—there is still plenty of summer fun in store for Seattle. The month of August marks the beginning of a wonderful lineup of weekly outdoor music. KEXP presents Concerts at the Mural every Friday at the mural amphitheater in Seattle Center.
Each Friday evening features some of KEXP’s favorite artists, with up to four performances per night beginning at 5:30 p.m. The concerts are free and open to the public, catered to those who want to experience Seattle’s vibrant independent music scene. Enjoy local tunes from the grassy amphitheater setting complete with a beer garden, with the Space Needle as the stage’s background.
Last week kicked off the 2014 Concerts at the Mural with headliner Charles Bradley. Check out photos and tweets from attendees, and make sure to catch the next concert this Friday!
