Memorial Day weekend across Capitol Hill will bring a Pike/Pine prom, community celebrations at Seattle Central and in Volunteer Park, a weekend of “fests” including the continuing SIFF and the final(?) Rain Fest, and the annual tradition that is free burgers at Li’l Woody’s.
Before you start the heavy recreating of Memorial Day weekend 2016 on Capitol Hill, take care of some civic duty:
- Wednesday: Two design reviews for the area will look at a 23-story senior housing development on First Hill and a lofts project planned for Boylston just off Broadway.
- Thursday: Join Capitol Hill Housing for its annual community forum — 2016’s theme is Gearshift. Meanwhile, the monthly EastPAC community crime meeting takes place at Seattle U.
Beyond that, it’s all fun and games. Wednesday night brings the return of Linda’s Prom — now in its 6th year!
Thursday is a day of music, games, and food along Broadway at the 2016 Seattle Central Unity Fair:
Come and celebrate the 11th Anniversary of Seattle Central’s biggest student lead event of the year, Unity Fair! Join us as we celebrate our diverse community through Live Music, Food, Dance, Games, Booths, a Crime Investigation game and all around good vibes!

Explore the world’s cultures over the weekend as the hardcore Rain Fest returns for a “final” edition at Neumos. Saturday, a few thousand will gather in Volunteer Park to celebrate at the Seattle Eritrean Independence Day celebration.
And, yup, you can wash it all down Monday with free burgers at E Pine’s Li’l Woody’s.
God bless America. And god bless Capitol Hill.
