And, with the first Saturday of June comes the Annual Bigelow Block Sale – and this year marks the 20th year of the event, with special celebrations planned along with the usual block sale treasure hunting.

Every year for the past two decades, neighbors up and down Bigelow Ave N join in along with homes on adjacent streets for a blowout block sale. Typically, 40-50 homes participate, and this year the block is also throwing a party to celebrate 20 years.

Bigelow Street SignTo help celebrate, Dante’s Inferno Dogs will be on hand for local Seattle hot dogs and Wild Smiles Face Painting will be decorating kids faces for the day. Plus, neighborhood kids will be running their own lemonade and cookie stands, and the block will be hopping with neighbors strolling up and down the street.

The 20th Annual Bigelow Block Sale is Saturday, June 1st from 9am-3pm rain or shine. Mark your calendars for a block sale extravaganza and check out the participating homes on and around Bigelow (marked with balloons) on the first Saturday of June.

If you live on Bigelow or a neighboring street and would like to participate, make sure to register by May 20. Neighbors chip in $20 per house to participate, with any proceeds above and beyond the costs going to the Queen Anne Helpline.
