WHAT TO EXPECT:

Don’t miss Comcast’s “Bite of Seattle”‘s 30th Birthday kick-off celebration at 11am on Friday, July 15. You can play some trivia, show off your best dance moves, belt out some karaoke and win great prizes! The first 1,000 guests to the “birthday party” will receive a free cupcake courtesy of PinkaBella Cupcakes!

The Bite’s dedication to the culinary arts is displayed not only by the 50+ Seattle area restaurants and 30+ food product companies that participate in the event, but through other attractions that are created specifically in support of the hospitality industry. Examples include The Alley hosted by Tom Douglas. The Alley will feature seven Seattle restaurants each day, with a total of 16 restaurants participating over the three-day event. For just $10, you can purchase a meal that samples items from all seven restaurants. You’ll get to sample the best of Northwestern cuisine all on one plate.

The Family Fun Zone is new this year, located near the EMP at Seattle Center. With great entertainment and lots of fun for kids, this area is a family favorite. There’s a large assortment of kids inflatables and the Shishkaberry’s/Radio Disney Kids stage.

New this year at Seattle Center is the Puget Sound DockDogs’ first Dock Jumping competition! There will be three days of exciting dog jumping competition. Handlers and dog teams will compete for cash, ribbons and prizes all three days of the Bite. DockDogs is open to any dog that likes water and fun—regardless of breed, size, shape, or ability. All dogs are welcome! You can get tips on coaching and encouraging their pooches from Puget Sound DockDogs members. Brought to you by BECU.
