24 THINGS TO DO IN SEATTLE THIS WEEK 🌯
Make more medicine. Last week, we shared a medicine-making class that caught your attention. As of Sunday night, this week’s sequel had just a few spots left. If you snag one of those spots, the class will have you making oils, salves, and creams. (Capitol Hill)
Go on a jazz walk. Take a stroll down five blocks of jazz bands and singers from around the Pacific Northwest. Don’t stress out about burning too many calories on that walk, there’ll be plenty of food and drink to keep your energy up. (Shoreline)
Hang out in a park. For a midweek boost, hit up the free yoga at Seattle Center, take your kids on a one-mile hike with an expert (she writes books about Seattle’s parks), or do some outdoor karaoke downtown.
Draw yourself back to the early 2000s. Were you obsessed with Josie and the Pussycats? Then this is the event for you. No, you’re not just going to watch the movie. You’re going to watch it while somebody pauses it at certain points and gives everyone time to draw the scenes onscreen. Bring your own art supplies or borrow theirs. (Central District)
Understand immigration. Seattle CityClub is inviting young locals to spend half a day at “Civic Boot Camp.” The goal? By the end of the day, you should have a deeper understanding of immigration and what you can do to support immigrants. If you can’t make this one, there’s another one August 25. (Columbia City)
Go green. Meet local farmers, buy their veggies, and learn how to live a little more sustainably. One highlight: The Earth School activity will teach people how to make soap and identify local, helpful plants. (Redmond)
Do something a little different... Check out gorgeous chalk murals from artists all over the world, then bring the kiddos to Ballard so they can brush up on Nordic history at Viking Days. If you haven’t gotten your fill of sword fighting by then, grab your lightsaber and join a big battle at Seattle Center.
In Portuguese, it’s spelled Brasil. Want to learn more about Brazilian culture? Head to Seattle Center for drumming, food, films, martial arts, and more of the country’s traditions. (Queen Anne)
WE LOVE SEEING LOCALS MAKE SEATTLE WORK 👏
