FAQs

Where is the auction?

Fisher Pavilion, Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109 (Lower Queen Anne). Directions from I-5: Exit at Mercer St and head west toward the Space Needle. Left on 5th Ave. Right on Denny Way. Right on 2nd Ave N. Fisher Pavilion is located near Thomas St & 2nd Ave N.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We recommend a taxi or rideshare service. With multiple events at Seattle Center, traffic and parking is congested, and the limited parking lots in Seattle Center fill up. If you must drive, carpool or arrive early. The closest parking garage to Fisher Pavilion is the 1st Ave N Garage. Enter on 1st Ave N or Warren, between Thomas St & John St.

How should I dress?

This year's theme is Space + Time. Dress to impress, with a celestial flair - think silvery moonlight, sparkling constellations, ethereal clouds, sacred geometry, the Northern Lights, and anything else you might see (or dream of) looking up at the night sky.

Can I volunteer for the auction?

Yes! Watch out for more information in January 2019.
