Block Party is Sept. 8 and 9

The 2018 Seattle Design Festival Block Party is 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 8 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 9 at Occidental Park, 149 S. Main St.

The free street fair celebrates the powerful ways design affects our lives. The design community and the public can interact through 39 large-scale design installations, performances and activities, all centered around the festival's 2018 theme: trust.

The fair will include an installation called “to House,” where people can learn about homelessness and hear from people who have experienced, or are experiencing, it. Visitors may also talk with vendors who sell Real Change newspaper, which provides employment for low income and homeless people.

Design in Public and community partners are presenting the fair.
