Seattle Parks and Recreation welcomes all to enjoy the free Big Day of Play Virtual Event

Big Day of Play is a celebration of our city’s diversity, and it encourages neighbors, communities, and families to have fun, build relationships and be active together. Big Day of Play will be held on Saturday, August 15 from Noon to 3 p.m. in a variety of virtual formats. The event is completely free and includes activities for all ages and abilities.

“Big Day of Play is our signature event at Seattle Parks and Recreation,” said Christopher Williams, Deputy Superintendent. “This free event supports community members in enjoying the health benefits—both physical and mental—of connecting with others through active recreation, and it helps show adults and kids how much fun there is to be had in our parks and open spaces.”

The event will showcase a virtual wellness fair, interactive virtual programs, streamed live performances, and opportunities for your community to create its own socially distanced block parties. Look for fitness instruction, games and competitions, and get ready to have fun in your yard, block, or parking lot.

The Big Day of Play is presented by SPR’s Get Moving Initiative, which supports local groups in offering innovative and culturally relevant events and projects to increase participation in community sports, recreation and physical fitness activities that serve under-resourced communities. Funding for the Get Moving Initiative is provided by the Seattle Park District.

This year’s Big Day of Play sponsors include the Associated Recreation Council, Seattle Department of Transportation, #SeattleTogether, Seattle Public Library, Seattle Public Schools, C89.5 FM, Seattle Channel, and Seattle Children’s Hospital.
