About PNA’s Rainbow Hop
The PNA has a rich 40-year history of strengthening a sense of belonging in our community, which we help achieve through one of our signature events: Rainbow Hop. This Pride and LGBTQIA+ event celebrates finding oneself, encourages inclusivity and diversity in our community, and seeks to help individuals feel authentically seen, heard, and valued. We invite you to be a part of this gay, family-friendly, and multi-generational celebration!
Families travel the Rainbow Hop route between 87th and 67th on Greenwood Avenue and take part in dozens of Pride-centric activities and crafts. You will have the opportunity to let loose at our all-ages dance party in the PNA Blue Building, and visit participating businesses where you can engage in fun and colorful activities, listen to stories and music, and enjoy plays and performances. By participating in Rainbow Hop, you become part of a movement that seeks to make Northwest Seattle a healthy, inclusive community where everyone belongs.
To participate in Rainbow Hop, simply follow the Rainbow Hop map and visit the businesses along the route. Collect stamps as you go along, and when you have six stamps, you can redeem them for free tickets to the Woodland Park Zoo!
Put on your finest Pride outfits and join us as we parade through our neighborhood in celebration of our connected and inclusive community.
Participating businesses and organizations will stamp the Rainbow Hop map for kids. Kids with at least 6 stamps can exchange their maps for a free Woodland Park Zoo ticket in the Ken’s Market parking lot from 1 to 3 pm. The Rainbow Hop map and activity list is available as a pdf, copies can be picked up at participating locations, or you can explore our interactive map and activity list here!
