Left on 5th Ave. Right on Denny Way. Right on 2nd Ave N. Fisher Pavilion is located near Thomas St & 2nd Ave N. Where do I park? Use a taxi, Lyft or Uber! With multiple events at Seattle Center, traffic and parking is congested, limited and paid parking lots in Seattle Center fill up. If you must drive, carpool or arrive early, keeping in mind that Key Arena will be under construction.

Our annual auction always sells out, so get your tickets early! If I am unable to attend, can I make a tax-deductible ‘regrets’ gift? Absolutely! Just click "Tickets" above and then scroll to our Regrets option, or call 206/467-8734 x16. How should I dress? This year's theme is Space & Time. Dress to impress, with a creative flair. We recommend dressing in your celestial best, ready for a night spent on the astral plane - think planetary bodies, sacred geometry, and anything else you might see (or dream up) sparkling in the night sky.
