Thanks to PhinneyWood businesses, neighbors, friends and everyone else who helped make Friday’s Summer Streets event a huge success.

An estimated 10,000 people enjoyed strolling the street, riding bikes, interacting with artists, watching acrobats, making art, listening to bands, creating music, chasing bubbles, meeting friends, shopping in local businesses, taking in the monthly art walk and just soaking up the positive atmosphere of Greenwood Ave N converted to a public plaza for a perfect summer evening.

Local businesses like Ken’s Market and area residents donated 2,800 pounds of food to create Seattle’s largest canned food pyramid–that’s almost a ton and a half of donations.  All food was donated to the Greenwood Food Bank. 

Here are some examples of the positive feedback we’ve received: 

  • “It felt like the best night of the summer.  Way to go!”
  • “Thank you for the neighborhood Summer Streets program. As a small business owner, I gain some potential new customers and I appreciate how it brings the residents and business owners together to celebrate our neighborhood and city. We had a wonderful turnout in our neighborhood.
  • “I wish we could do this every Friday!”
