This year’s South Lake Union Block Party benefits the Cornish College for the Arts, which is coming on its 100th year this November.

The block party features food-sampling tickets to some of SLU’s favorite eateries like Shanik, Kigo Kitchen and La Toscanella. There’ll also be food trucks, beer garden, burger grilling contest, lots of music, activities for kids, and an outdoor movie to top it all off, School of Rock, preceded by a performance by the Seattle Rock Orchestra.

All happening one day only, Friday, August 8, noon to 11 pm at Denny Way and Westlake Ave. N.
