Every First Thursday, April through October (excluding July, due to the holiday)

This spring will be our fourth year partnering up with the Downtown Seattle Association to bring First Thursday activities to Occidental Park. There have been many iterations of it over the decades and we are so honored to be a part of its resurgence. As this area grows, so does this event and we are excited to bring a new element to it this year!

Pioneer Square is definitely seeing a revitalization with awesome new restaurants, great shops and galleries and many new businesses moving in (Weyerhauser, Expedia, etc.) As many of you also know, the cruise ships start coming in May, which is when tourism really starts picking up — not to mention SIFF, the Seattle Art Fair, all the conventions at the Convention Center, PAX and of course all the people who live in the area who enjoy attending First Thursday to get their awesome dose of culture.

We invite you to come shop with 55 of some of the most talented local makers in the Seattle area, who will be setting up shop here in Occidental Park every First Thursday, from 12pm-9pm.
