This year’s (free!) event features a jam-packed lineup of local bands throughout the day, the “best burger in SLU” competition, the School of Visual Concepts Steamroller Smackdown and more. Visit for more information. Tickets for burger grilling are available here.

As the largest festival focused on celebrating and showcasing South Lake Union, proceeds from the Block Party benefit local organizations committed to the neighborhood. This year’s event beneficiaries include the Low Income Housing Institute and South Lake Union Chamber of Commerce. By attending the South Lake Union Block Party you are supporting organizations whose work is vital to the community.
