Meetings and Events

Our next EATA chapter meeting will be this SATURDAY, June 3rd.* We will be volunteering on Beacon Hill from noon-2:30 to help with a community project. Information below. 

* PLEASE NOTE: Saturday meeting day for this event only. 

Please let us know if you plan on making it and are able to volunteer. 


The Festival takes place in Jefferson Park near the community Center at 3801 Beacon Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108. Here is google map link.,-122.308286,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x804359f1f853c8d9!8m2!3d47.569752!4d-122.308286

You do not need to bring anything, except what you need to be comfortable outside under a canopy for a few hours.

Parking is limited along Beacon  Ave on the east side of the park, it is wise to allow some time to walk into the park from there or the neighboring side streets.

Ask any volunteer near the community Center and they can direct you to our booth in the park behind the Community Center on the lawn. We will have a number of canopies and tables there. 

The kites are being purchased through the Washington Kite Fliers Association. We have asked them to come to Jefferson Community Center the week before the event and show us how to put the kites together. If any of your volunteers are available to do so on 6:30pm  Wed, May 31st that would be great. They are very simple, we did it last year, but a quick tutorial is needed to make things flow easily to start the day. During the "shift changes" there is plenty of cross over to train replacement kite makers.

In addition to the Kites we will be bringing Artist facilitators to interface with the community ( especially parents stuck waiting in the line for kite making) about their experience of the rapid re-development that is washing over our community. The artists will be attending 4 events this summer and creating work with and for the community around these issues. Each event has a theme, Beacon Hill Festival is "Hopes and Dreams" for our community. We follow with themes of "resistance",  "history" and "grief" at following events.

Thanks again for your interest and support.
