On Friday, Aug. 9, PhinneyWood Summer Streets will fill Greenwood Ave. N. Combining with the monthly art walk, the free, family-friendly event is a big party that will take over the streets with music, art and food. The party is 6 to 10 p.m. and will take place on Greenwood Ave N between N. 87th and N. 67th Streets.
Hosted by the Seattle Department of Transportation, Summer Streets will feature several artists and performances for all ages.
Ayron Jones is playing soulful music at Valentine’s Seattle; TASTY is hosting their 4th Annual Art ‘n’ Craft Fair; skateboarding experience can be gained with the Maryhill Ratz; and 826 Seattle and the UW Astronomy Department are partnering to set up an awesome Portable Planetarium that fits up to 28 people at one time. Want more? Naked City Brewery is hosting their 2nd Annual Soccer Tournament—a fundraiser for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center—on Saturday and throwing a pre-tournament party during Summer Streets. Volunteers of America will also be building cool sculptures out of healthy canned food donations given to the Greenwood Food Bank. There will be tons of fun for everyone.
