The second-annual Seattle Made Week is in the books, and we had a blast! We hosted our inaugural Seattle Made Market Day at KEXP, pop-ups and meet-the-maker events around town, contests, another epic Taste of Seattle Made sampling party, and a panel discussion about revitalizing Seattle's sewn goods industry!
Seattle Made Market Day presented by BECU
Over 1000 Seattleites attended an afternoon of shopping from 32 Seattle Made manufacturers in the newly opened KEXP community gathering space. Members loved connecting with attendees and showcasing the products they proudly make right here in Seattle!
Made in Seattle: The Future of Urban Manufacturing
Over 120 guests attended an evening presentation and panel discussion about how to revitalize Seattle's sewn-goods industry based on the principles of sustainability and equity.
The evening’s speakers included: Gray Madden – President of Filson, Erin Nelson – Co-Director of SGBN, Jennifer Porter – Owner of Satsuma Designs, Karim Lessard – Chief of Staff at Evrnu, Joe Wadden – Director of Operations of Outdoor Research and Sandrine Espie – Executive Director of Muses.
Taste of Seattle Made Party
Over 400 Seattle Made supporters came out to sample delicious treats and drinks from 35 Seattle Made food and beverage producers. Samples included everything from beer to kimchi, and popsicles to sausage. The room was packed and the energy was great! We can’t wait for next year!
Seattle Made Brewer’s Night, Youth Tours, Pop-Up Shops, Sampling, and our #seattlemadeweek Contest
Seattle Made Brewer's night featured brewers and beer from 15 Seattle Made breweries at Flatstick Pub. Brewers vied for the Seattle Made Duffle-Board championship, with Peddler Brewing coming out on top! We also featured a small pop-up shop showcasing beer related products!
Seattle Made Week held additional events throughout the week including factory tours for Seattle youth on National Manufacturing Day, a pop-up shop at West Elm, and daily food and beverage sampling at both Central Co-op and Cone & Steiner.
Finally, our #seattlemadeweek social media contest was a success with an amazing array of photos highlighting the week. Check out a few of the winners!
