getting around seattle center

Festival Sundiata is held on the campus of Seattle Center, A 74-acre park located in the lower ​Queen Anne neighborhood, at the north end of downtown.  The park was chosen as the site for the 1962 World’s Fair and was featured in the film, “It Happened at the World’s Fair,”


​Where can I park?

Seattle Center is surrounded by a generous amount of public and private parking.

However, due to the popularity of the Festival, parking can sometimes be difficult to find, especially in the afternoons.


A few tips:

Consider using public transportation or coming on foot or bike to Festival Sundiata—no parking to worry about.

Carpool to Seattle Center’sofficial parking lots—offering discounted carpool parking to Festival-goers

Find a buddy to carpool on King County Metro’s Event Match

Allow yourself plenty of time to find parking

Some of the pay lots are “cash only” and some are unattended, so come prepared with cash in all bill sizes

Please be considerate of the folks who live in the neighborhood surrounding the Seattle Cente obey posted parking rules, don’t block driveways, and drive slowly on residential streets

Visit the Seattle Center website for more information on parking options.


​How can I get there by public transportation?

Let Metro do the driving!  King County Metro offers many regular routes that run to and from the Seattle Center and surrounding areas.  Please see the Metro trip planner for routes that service the Seattle Center.  Please remember the Sunday schedule (reduced service) will be in Sunday June 12th.
