Capitol Hill Block Party is an annual, 3-day music festival and block party held each July in the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood...
With a six-stage setup of both indoor and outdoor venues, multiple beer gardens, and VIP lounges, CHBP provides a communal, accessible experience, continuously evolving since it was founded in 1997. Featuring big name national artists, promising local talent, and lesser-known performers across a variety of genres, CHBP exposes its 20,000+ attendees to a diverse blend of acts that appeal to all music tastes and ages.
Never failing to bring Seattle and neighboring cities together, CHBP has created a well-known name for itself alongside many other national festivals. The best weekend of summer!
