Last year, individuals and groups from around and beyond the county came together in a grass-roots effort that created a community-wide commemoration of the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition Centennial. The resulting publications, exhibits, events, performances, and symposia generated a synergy of activity that raised public awareness about the historic fair while exploring issues of 1909 and their relevancy to today.

4Culture, with support from Seattle’s Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, has put together highlights of the A-Y-P centennial into a short video presentation that demonstrates the breadth of the commemoration. We hope the following sights and sounds bring back fond memories and make you proud of King County’s heritage community. Enjoy!
