Green Lake Summer Events

There’s not much better than Green Lake in the summer. With a plethora of events and things to do, it’s no wonder the Green Lake neighborhood is a destination during Seattle’s sunny months. Whether you just finished swimming with the kids or want some drinks after a stroll around the lake, BluWater Bistro is your perfect neighborhood spot. We’re open for lunch, happy hour, dinner, late night, and brunch on the weekends. Stop by with the family or a date during a day in the neighborhood! Here are some upcoming events in Green Lake, all of which are just around the corner from BluWater.
