There will be hand sanitation facilities will also be available on-site, as well as hand washing facilities in the restrooms.There will be peonies available to purchase during the viewing times.
The date(s) of the festival will be announced closer to the event, as we are not yet sure when peak bloom will occur. Please keep checking our Facebook page and the website for updates.

Thirty-five years of friendship with Chongqing covers a good stretch of history and many exchange programs and delegations to and from our cities. The Seattle Chinese Garden is the most visible flowering of this friendship, and fittingly the site for celebrating the anniversary in late August with a 22-member Chongqing delegation led Deputy Mayor Zhang Ming. Also fitting was the welcome to Seattle by former mayor Charles Royer, who signed the original sister city affiliation agreement in 1983 — top row center in photo. Deputy Mayor Zhang is to his left. A fuller description of the visit and related events will be coming soon. Also, when you visit the Garden again, read the the plaque on the west wall of the courtyard, which honors the establishment of sister city ties and our enduring friendship.
Late afternoon is a special time for appreciating the Garden’s architectural details and the interplay of light and shadow. This view of the east gate reveals the intricate layering of design elements and color, from blue sky to woodwork. Come for a walk and savor the Garden’s beauty as the sun slips into the western horizon. Photo by Sandy Marvinney.
