Summer in SLU

#SummerinSLU @southlakeunion

Don’t miss out on a SLU-filled summer! Every. Single. Day.

From July 20–September 10, South Lake Union is giving you something to do on the Day 1 Playfield, right next to The Spheres.

If you joined us for SLU After Dark, you won’t want to miss the summer installation Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0. Inspired by the mercados of Latin America, the installation features recognizable three-dimensional frames that invite you home. They are a blank canvas for community engagement for people of all ages. And, they make the ultimate Instagram moment.

Each day, Summer in SLU has something different to offer.

Tuesdays, 11 am-1 pm

Spark your creativity with the Amazon Expressions studio. The pop-up craft cart joins us on the Day 1 Playfield from 11 am-1 pm with all the supplies needed to create a take-home project in 30 minutes or less.

Projects include alcohol ink coasters, paper marbling, feather macramé and more! No reservations are needed and all activities are free of charge.

Wednesdays, 3-5 pm

On Wednesdays, we eat. Visit us on your way to happy hour as we host a food pop-up each week, ranging from snow cones to fruit kebabs. Each Wednesday is a new surprise, and all are free of charge.

Thursdays, all day
Tiki Bar hours, 11 am-3 pm

Take a break from the workday in your own Urban Oasis. When the Seattle sun is out, soak it up in a chaise lounge. Or, grab some shade under the thatch umbrellas. Be sure to visit the Tiki Bar for refreshments, while supplies last, and other surprises.

Friday, 8 am-6 pm
Saturday-Sunday 3-7 pm
Monday, 8 am-6 pm

Nothing says summer like cornhole and lawn games. In true SLU fashion – we’re going even bigger. Literally.

Every Friday-Monday, there will be GIANT lawn games on the Playfield, like GIANT Jenga or GIANT Connect Four. It’s like your classic backyard BBQ, but GIANT.

South Lake Union is excited to take on summer with you. To let us in on the fun, follow @southlakeunion on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and use #SummerinSLU to share your photos!

Summer in SLU is hosted by South Lake Union and presented by Amazon. Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 is created by artists Esrawe + Cadena and produced by Creos.
