Saturday, October 1st

Experience The Ave for one day just for pedestrians. Dine, dance, and listen to music in the street in the heart of the U District.

Two Concerts on Saturday!

We just added another concert at our outdoor stage in the street. Come for both:
Reflecting the strong house show scene in the U District, Waxer will be playing jazzy indie rock with lots of ‘80s influence.

Reposado is a 9-piece Funk/Latin/Afro/Dance band from Seattle that plays what they label as 'tequila funk'. 

Outdoors On The Ave

For a second year, we are opening up The Ave to outdoor dining, music, and dancing in the heart of the U District.

Join us for two outdoor concerts at 6:30pm and 8pm on Saturday, October 1st, and dance in the street to Waxer and to the 'tequila funk' of Reposado.
