Seattle International District

The Seattle International District is one of Seattle's oldest and most frequented neighborhoods.  Here one can delight in delectable Asian cuisine, shop numerous specialty stores, and visit historical exhibits at the Wing Luke Asian Museum.  Two popular annual events are held here.  In late January or early February the Lunar New Year Celebration  takes place in the Great Hall of Union Station.  Samples of the best dishes from local restaurants are served with plenty of entertainment and arts and crafts.   In the second week of July the largest Pan-Asian American street fair in the Pacific Northwest is held - once again entertainment, arts and crafts are featured.  The Summer Festival is an extremely popular event
