We’ve listed the highlights below, but for a full download of what’s planned, please visit our website.

Opening Gala Tuesday August 4, 6:30-10:00 PM, Seattle Aquarium
Join us at the Seattle Aquarium on Tuesday August 4 for a unique opportunity to meet Seattle’s culinary celebrities and dine on their delicious sustainable seafood creations.  Located on Pier 59 at the edge of Puget Sound's Elliott Bay, the Seattle Aquarium is the region's premier resource for hands-on marine experiences and one of the most extraordinary spaces in the city. The Gala will feature amazing seafood prepared by chefs and leaders in the local sustainability movement, including Roy Breiman of Cedarbrook Lodge, Jason Wilson of Crush and Miller's Guild, Seth Caswell from Dunbar Room and Hotel Sorrento, and Betsy Davidson from the Seattle Aquarium. Enjoy salmon flights prepared by Cape Cleare Fishery, and savor oysters on the half shell from Taylor Shellfish. Get insights into perfect salmon grilling techniques, pick up cooking tips from local "Good Fish" author Becky Selengut, and sip summertime cocktails out on the deck. Space is limited.
