The University of Washington and the U District Partnership present Up Your Ave, a welcome event for incoming and returning UW students. From NE 41st St to Ravenna Blvd all along University Way NE, a.k.a. "The Ave," During Up Your Ave, students travel “the Ave” collecting stamps from participating businesses. The event culminates with a Party on the Street with music and games! There will be live music and tables with information on community involvement organizations. Great prizes, games and give-aways are featured at our local businesses. Come learn how you can get involved in your new community, check out the local scene, and explore the many restaurants and shops along "The Ave." Get all of the required stamps in your "Passport" and claim your free "UP YOUR AVE" T-shirt.

This year we are partnering with several of our local nonprofits like the University Family YMCA, University District Food Bank, University Heights Center, and Scarecrow Video to celebrate the fantastic work that people are doing in our own backyard. So, buy food in the neighborhood, or bring some from home, and take it back to dine with your neighbors at our community table in the U Heights Community Plaza. Once there we will have music, games, and crafts for kids and adults to enjoy. We'll also have free delicious ice cream graciously donated by Sweet Alchemy on The Ave!
This event is a registered part of National Night Out.
