City Hall Open House on January 28th

City Hall belongs to the people of Seattle. That’s why for the third year in a row, we’re asking the community to come downtown to City Hall and enjoy local music and food, learn about resources the City provides, meet local elected officials and connect with opportunities to make our community a better place.

Please join us for an Open House at City Hall on January 28th, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Mayor McGinn, the Seattle City Council, City Attorney Pete Holmes and representatives of City departments will be available for questions and discussion, along with:

  • live music,
  • on-site farmers market,
  • local food trucks,
  • dogs from the Seattle Animal Shelter who are looking for a good home,
  • Q&A with elected officials,
  • tours of the mayor’s office and Council offices, and
  • workshops on understanding your credit and how a bill becomes a law.

We hope you can join us on January 28th.
