U District Station Opening Festival & $3 Food Walk

Join Us Saturday, October 2 for the U District Station Opening Festival and Food Walk

On Saturday, October 2, Seattle will witness a historic event as Sound Transit officially opens the new U District Light Rail Station in the heart of the neighborhood. 

Graduate Hotels presents the U District Station Opening Festival & $3 Food Walk on Saturday, October 2 from 10AM-8PM. Organized by The U District Partnership, the festival will be a full day event around the new station, including a street closure for an outdoor festival on Brooklyn Ave and University Way. Live music and performances by local bands and cultural groups at the Xfinity Main Stage, outdoor seating, and activities and games for kids and adults alike will greet visitors outside of the station. Thousands of hungry guests can explore the diverse and delicious food offerings in the U District though our inaugural Food Walk, and a beer garden will introduce thirsty 21+ attendees to our local breweries.
