More about Seattle Peace Concerts:

Seattle Peace Concerts' free summer park concert series has been coordinated by Don Glenn since the early 80’s and features well established musicians, entertainers, and some of the Northwest's best new artists. Performers often embody a diverse set of musical styles including rock, pop, reggae, R&B, blues, zydeco, drum groups, choirs, folk, world beat, jazz and others all reflect the diverse contemporary music scene found in the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle Peace Concerts and an amazing range of mostly local musicians and sponsors have kept free music going in the Seattle Parks for more than 30 years. The negative impact that some of the events held at that time in the parks had on the environment resulted in an attempt in the early eighties to ban amplified music from the Seattle Parks. For the past 30 years, the Seattle Peace Concerts have maintained fantastic relations with the City Government and the Seattle community in order to ensure the quality of Seattle’s park system while cultivating arts events and festivals.
