Happy 25th Capitol Hill Block Party! Oh yes, one of the biggest music festivals in Seattle of the year is back for 2023.

While technically the fest’s 25th anniversary happened during the pandemic break, this is the 25th year the party will take over the city’s hippest hood. And because the epic music fest is celebrating its silver anniversary (of sorts), the celebration this year is going to be bigger and better.

Like years past, the midsummer music fest is spread over three days starting Friday, July 21st to Sunday, July 23rd, 2023. That is three whole days of electrifying music, super-talented artists, food trucks and insane excitement.

Talking about the block party, Kate Harris, Sponsorship Director & Associate Producer, said, “What began as a one-day event with just five bands and a couple of DJs in 1997 has grown into three days with over 100 performers and thousands of attendees. We’re excited to celebrate this 25-year milestone and cannot wait to celebrate with everyone this year.”
