  • The Seattle Design Festival Block Party is a two-day street fair celebrating the powerful ways design affects our lives. This fun outdoor event serves as the kickoff to the two-week Seattle Design Festival (September 9-22, 2017) and is an opportunity for the design community and the public to come together and interact through large-scale design installations, performances, and design activities all centered around the Festival’s 2017 theme, Design POWER. The installations are designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Families are welcome and encouraged.
