Books, Bites, & Beats Festival

A multidisciplinary art and culture festival centered around Black and Diaspora Food, Music, Writing, and Film spanning the NE corner of 20th and Union into and through both spaces of Loving Room Books and Made Space Seattle.

Three days of programing focused on written and spoken word, music, and food and featuring filmmaking, dance, and visual arts throughout. This festival represents the Central District in ways that delve beyond being defined by physical address through acknowledging those who have created it, currently live in it, and those who carry it as home with them despite no longer residing here.

With something for all audiences and all ages from maker stations, an art show, film screenings, food trucks, live music, vendor market, book readings and giveaways, and more! You don’t want to miss out on this totally FREE event .
