Top 5 things to do in Seattle this July

It’s July! Time to dance on the beach, watch some global outdoor movies, and hit all the festivals! Then we can improve our cities, tackle homelessness and dismantle racism. It’s just another month in our global city!

1. Polish Festival Seattle


This year, Polish Festival Seattle celebrates Poland’s Mazovian District, and the culture centered around Warsaw. There will be traditional crafts and dancing, but be assured that there will be pierogi! This year, you can even learn how to make your own pierogi, as well as other Polish bread, and desserts. Of course you can also just buy pierogies, golabki, placki, kielbasa, have a polish beer and go dancing!
