It’s time to celebrate your great work in support of our residents and communities!

Thank you for all you have done to serve the people of Seattle and King County during a time of significant challenge. We were the first in the nation to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, but because you stepped up with courage, dedication, and hard work, even while lives and livelihoods were upended, our region is recovering and reopening.

To celebrate you, and all public employees, during these unprecedented times we’re throwing a party!

City of Seattle employees are invited to a Welcome Back Bash on Tuesday, June 21 on the 4th Avenue Plaza of Seattle City Hall from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. There will be live music from King Youngblood and Black Tones, celebrations, and a free lunch from local food trucks for city and county government employees.

Seattle Channel will have a live stream available for viewing between 11:45 and 1:05 here.

To receive a free lunch coupon for one entrée and one beverage, please show your employee identification (badge, pay stub, etc.) on June 21 at the tables inside the Red Room adjacent to the plaza. Only 400 coupons are available, so get yours early!

Attendance and participation are optional and voluntary. 

For those returning, and those who never left, we are welcoming city and county government employees back to a reopened downtown Seattle, saying thank you for your service, and celebrating the brighter future we are building for the people of our region.
