Gum Wall Snap! Contest

Posted October 31, 2015

Gum Wall Snap! Contest

Snap! Pop! Hi, it’s me, the Gum Wall! I've got big news and a contest to share with you: for the first time in 20 YEARS, I'm due for a total scrub down. Just like you, all that sugar can really mess up the surface of your bricks, er, teeth! Before I get cleaned, take a snap of me and upload it to the Gum Wall Snap! Contest to share your sweet, sticky memories with the world and get entered to win a personalized Market Charm! Join in the fun and upload your Gum Wall Snap!

Do you have tickets for Friday’s Sunset Supper yet? This annual party raises critical funds for the Market’s social services agencies – AND it’s a ton of fun, with 90 restaurants, wineries, breweries, and distilleries sampling their goods. Ticket information can be found here.

We wanted to let you know about a few changes at the Market on Friday as we set up for the big event. At 10 a.m., the First & Pike entrance will be closed to vehicles. We
suggest driving directly to our parking garage entrance at 1531 Western Avenue. Pedestrian access on the cobblestone street Pike Place will be limited while large tents and a stage are set up. Sidewalks on the west side of Pike Place will remain open until 6 p.m.
