MOUNT BAKER HUB FEST JOINS SEATTLE DESIGN FESTIVAL SEPT 17, 2017
This Sunday September 17, 2017, the Mt Baker Hub Business Association features a set of local musicians, artists, and food vendors at the “Function in the Junction”.
Exploring the “power” of place, the event celebrates the vision of the emerging Mt Baker Town Center. The Mount Baker Hub Business Association has again joined with the Seattle Design Festival to focus on the amazing opportunity for a vibrant Town Center at Mt Baker Station. This Link Station Area is unique, with key blocks surrounding the station primed to fulfill the North Rainier Neighborhood Plan, and the promise of a Town Center that will be sustainable economically, socially and environmentally. Hub Fest is a FREE community festival on September 17th showcasing local artists through live music, food, art and community booths, and an Extended Bicycle Sunday — linking the event to Beacon Hill via Cheasty Boulevard, and Lake Washington via Mt Baker Boulevard. Mount Baker Hub Fest takes place Sunday, September 17th, between 11:30 am and 6:30 pm on the Mt. Baker Link and ArtSpace Plaza (2915 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144).
The Function’s music line up includes: INTEGRAL DJS; RAINBOWGORE CAKE; JEFF FORDE; AU COLLECTIVE; RELL BE FREE; TUESDAY; ARI GLASS; and THE M9. See stage schedule for times.
In addition to the musical line up, the Festival will feature a variety of visual arts by local artists and ArtSpace residents; locally produced food; amenities for cyclists; and fun for the whole family.
Visitors will also be able to learn the latest on the innovative Accessible Mount Baker project, which is scheduled to transform the Hub station area by 2021. See Plan Section Views & Traffic Flow Simulation.
EXTENDED BICYCLE SUNDAY ROUTE: As an added bonus, the City’s Bicycle Sunday will feature an Extended Route from Seward Park all the way to Beacon Hill, linking the neighborhoods and Hub Fest via the Olmsted Brother’s historic parkways. The normal Lake Washington Boulevard closures will be in effect, and the extended route will travel along the relatively quiet Olmsted Parkways of Mount Baker Boulevard, and Cheasty Boulevard.
