In the mood for art and dining outside this evening? Try Pike People Street and the Capitol Hill Art Walk, from 4PM to 10PM. Grab great food from local restaurants then stay for a bit of street ‘activation’ on the docket. It all supports a vibrant Capitol Hill community!
For Pike People Street nights, a couple blocks around 11th and E Pike are cordoned off to create a safe, accessible pedestrian plaza of sorts. This is the 3rd year of the Pike People Street pilot program, evolving in partnership with the neighborhood. The 2017 schedule includes the 2nd Thursday of July and August, as well as July and August Saturdays. Saturday Pike People Street hours are 6PM to 3AM, with three left to go: August 12, 19, and 26.
