Free Music in the Parks: The Seattle Peace Concerts

See also

There are many reasons to love living in Seattle and one of which are The Seattle Peace Concerts.These non-political / non-religious free concerts, now in their 34th year, are held Sundays noon to 6 p.m. Each of the concerts feature a variety of bands with a drum circle following the last performers.

The Peace Through Music series was created following Chief Seattle’s philosophy: Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect!

While the concerts are all free to attend, they do ask those who are able to bring some canned goods to help the local food banks and that anyone who can consider giving a monetary donations to help the concerts continue.
