Seattle Design Festival 2022

August 20 - August 26

The 2022 Seattle Design Festival will be all about CONNECTION. When thinking about design, there is something very tangible and physical in how things ‘connect’ – but there is also something very emotional that ‘CONNECTION’ taps into as well. This year’s Festival, August 20-26, will kick off with the SDF Block Party at Lake Union Park and feature in-person and virtual experiences throughout the week. More information can be found on the Seattle Design Festival website.
