PhinneyWood Summer Streets - Annual Canstruction Event!
Saturday, August 9th
7231 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle WA 98103

Summer Streets is an annual event where the streets close to cars, and the neighborhood comes out to play. This vibrant and fun event brings out the best of the community. Every year at this event, we work with volunteers to build the best canstructure possible! Previous year structures have included a pyramid, a castle, and a throne. Community members add their canned food donations to the structure to make it bigger and better. Canned food donations benefit the VOA Greenwood Food Bank
