Annual Neighborhood Events

South Lake Union is a hub of activity year round. We often find members want to learn how to become more involved in the neighborhood through sponsorship and participation in signature neighborhood events. We've linked to the organizations who run the events, so you can contact them directly. Check out the events calendar for additional listings and details on these and other neighborhood events.

Please note: this list is created before some of these annual events have been planned. Events may change or be cancelled. Please contact them directly for the latest news.
