2019 Bothell Block Party & BrewFest Photos & Fun!

By | Bothell, Chamber News, Events, Uncategorized

Thousands of event goers descended upon downtown Bothell this Saturday to bask in the gorgeous Spring sunshine, savor tasty brews and ciders, and rock out to some of Seattle’s hottest bands at the 2019 Bothell Block Party & BrewFest!

People enjoyed choosing tastings from 30 different breweries, cideries and wineries, and getting their fill of lip-smacking good food at the many food trucks whose delicious aroma permeated the air.

There was something for everyone to do while the bands played including beer pong, putting golf, and large scale Jenga-like games. VIP guests relaxed in the covered VIP Lounge with leather couches and specialty cocktails, and music lovers danced their way to the two stages.

We loved meeting people of all types and ages from 21- to 85-year olds including bachelorette partiers, first daters, fans of the bands, company groups, solo rollers, and good friends gathering for a fun party.

We want to thank all of you who attended, all the vendors, bands and food trucks, all the sponsors, and of course all the staff and volunteers who worked so hard to bring this event to life.

Special thank you’s to Marketplace Sotheby’s International Realty for sponsoring the VIP Experience, to Bothell City Hall for the use of their plaza, and to the First & Main Design Market and the Bothell Police Department for generously donating the use of their parking lots.
