South Lake Union

An urban village North of downtown Seattle.

South Lake Union is a neighborhood with a distinct live-work-play culture.

By day, you’ll see streets bustling with everyone from biologists, to tech mavens and their furry friends. They’ll be visiting the Pike Place Market Express market for fresh produce during their lunch hour, or swinging by a Pronto bicycle-sharing station en route to their next stop. At night, the robust dining scene attracts locals and visitors alike. And when it’s time to play, the options are endless. The walkable neighborhood is home to many events including the annual South Lake Union Block Party. Attractions like the REI flagship store’s indoor climbing wall and watersports at Lake Union Park keep you happy and healthy.

SeattleMet has partnered with Amazon to host America’s Largest Beef Festival Presented by Amazon, Visit Seattle, and the Washington Beef Commission. They are activating all of Amazon’s South Lake Union’s outdoor space, roughly 3 city blocks, to serve up the best Steak dinner, burgers, boozy milkshakes, and much more. Three days of entertainment such as comedy and burlesque coupled with Chef Tastings and Demo’s, it is sure to be the food event of the year.

The event is also looking for volunteers.  If you donate 1 hour or 6 hours of your time, (they would appreciate any of the hours), you’ll be able to enjoy the event that day free of charge.
