Flag Day Festival! June 14th at Seattle CIty Hall

Help us celebrate citizenship and civic life at a new festival for all Seattleites. We’re taking the iconic American holiday, Flag Day, and amplifying it with a focus on celebrating the benefits of citizenship and being civically engaged. Flag Day Festival will welcome new Americans, engage native-born citizens and invite all to come together and build our community’s civic strength at Seattle City Hall.

The free festival will start with a USCIS naturalization ceremony for new citizens and a “sworn again” oath-taking for current citizens. Then, everyone is invited to a fair where you can enjoy great food, listen to local musicians, take home a free Civic Action Toolkit and learn how to plug into Seattle’s civic life and make a difference. To help us pay tribute to our immigrant community, prolific local artist Yegizaw Michael is creating a sculptural installation that tells the stories of local immigrants in City Hall. Plus, KUOW will record festival goers’ stories and their journey towards citizenship and civic engagement in Seattle.

Everyone is welcome! Join us for:
Free food
Live music
Games and activities for kids
Multi-ethnic cuisine cooking demos provided by Project Feast
Action planning at our Civic Toolkit area

$7 parking available at SeaPark garage at 6th Ave. & James St. First 100 people receive parking validation or ORCA card!
