Seattle Summer Streets
Greenwood Ave from 67th to 87th. 11 am-5 pm. Free.
Something special happens during Summer Streets. A road— normally a space for cars— is transformed into a place, unleashing creativity and energy in our neighborhoods. The street becomes a public plaza where people celebrate, dance, create art, play games, get to know their neighbors and enjoy their community. This year, Summer Streets is teaming up with the 3rd Annual Greenwood Street Soccer Tournament.
