2016 Street Scramble at the Market


2 hours on foot.

As we approach the holidays and the new year, we feel that it is more important than ever to stand up for our values and institutions and to work to protect the most vulnerable members of our community. At the same time, it is vital to set aside time to do the things that feed us, like having fun. At Street Scramble at the Market, you’ll get to explore downtown at its holiday best while most of the proceeds go to support The Market Foundation providing vital services to elderly and low-income residents of the Market’s neighborhood, but this year, we will also include checkpoint locations that highlight Seattle’s indigenous people and our institutions of government. We will provide materials for you to contact public officials on a variety of topics important to upholding our democracy, and you can even get started while you are waiting for the results.

This event is 2 hours and on-foot only (no 3-hour or bike option), so the course is especially compact, so expect to be able to visit a bunch of checkpoints in a relatively short distance. Also, in the spirit of giving, part of your entry fee goes to The Market Foundation, which provides vital services to elderly and low-income residents of downtown and welcomes us back each year to Pike Place Market.

Join us at Street Scramble at the Market, the most festive Street Scramble of the year, while helping neighbors in need.
