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.
