Celebrate North Seattle started as a grassroots effort in June of 2010. Organizers of the event noticed a severe lack of positive community events in North Seattle and along the often infamous Aurora Avenue. The event doubled in size in just its second year! The goal of the event is simple: highlight and celebrate the good of our community while we connect people to their neighbors. The hopeful result: neighbors and businesses know and trust one another and invest more into building and bettering their community. No other event like this exists on Aurora Avenue. The organizers of Celebrate North Seattle hope to expand to bring hopeful community-driven events and initiatives to the North Seattle in the future.
