Welcome Back Weeks

We’ve reached an incredible moment as a city: Seattle is able to fully reopen and once again come together as a community. We are at this point because of our collective efforts to overcome COVID-19.

Seattle's success in pulling through the pandemic is thanks to residents who prioritized community-wide health and acted in their neighbors' interests, alongside their own. Now Seattleites need to bring that same sense of civic and city pride to recovery efforts. Downtown small businesses, cultural institutions, and workers need our support – they can’t fully reopen or recover without us. 

One way to support downtown's recovery is the upcoming Welcome Back Weeks, which will occur from July 12 – 26 and feature promotions across downtown neighborhoods with large-scale events taking place in the Chinatown-International District, Pioneer Square, and Westlake.

The City of Seattle is proud to host these events with a focus on supporting local BIPOC artists and musicians, small businesses, and community-based and neighborhood organizations. Come downtown to celebrate alongside us!
