Pier 62 is open for business!

Friends of Waterfront Seattle is looking to partner with business operators to bring vending opportunities to Pier 62 during our events and programs this summer and fall. Businesses may sell retail goods, promote services, and sell food and beverages (conditions apply).

Upcoming events and programs with vending opportunities:

  • Pier 62 Pop-Up Markets (Thursdays in August and September)
  • KEXP Beats & Eats
  • Beat Masters Competition

Our goal is to continually cultivate inclusive spaces where all people — specifically Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as well as under-resourced communities — are invited to contribute and be a part of programs, events, and Waterfront Park.
