Welcome Back Weeks

DSA is celebrating Seattle’s reopening and the return of workers and visitors with a summer full of events. In July and September, we’re hosting Welcome Back Weeks (July 12-25 and Sept. 4-19) with a special concentration of activations and promotions. For the first week of each two-week period, we’ll have pop-up tents at locations throughout downtown, with refreshments, giveaways, music, information and more. With support from the Metropolitan Improvement District, we’re helping reacquaint employers, workers and visitors to the center city while creating a great environment for downtown residents.

As workers return to the office and visitors and residents again experience all downtown has to offer, the Downtown Seattle Association and the city of Seattle are partnering on two sets of “Welcome Back Weeks” from July 12-25 and September 4-19.

During the first half of each two-week period, DSA will host Welcome Back booths at locations across downtown, with staff providing information, refreshments and free giveaways.

With support from the Metropolitan Improvement District, we’ll also host a wide range of inclusive, family-friendly activities during Welcome Back Weeks and all summer long.  You can enjoy free live local music, try your hand at a downtown scavenger hunt, or take part in a guided urban hike along the waterfront or through the retail core. Actors from The 5th Avenue Theatre will perform Broadway favorites at select downtown locations and we’ve got a full calendar of events at Westlake Park and Occidental Square.

Love, SeaTown logo

Coinciding with our Welcome Back activities, we’re also launching a major marketing and communications effort to reunite locals with downtown. Under the theme Love, SeaTown, we’ll highlight the things we love about — and can only experience — downtown. The campaign will span social media, radio, transit and local TV. A complete listing of DSA events and other promotions is available at loveseatown.com.
