Age Friendly Seattle Coffee Hours

Age Friendly Seattle Coffee Hours are held on the third Thursday of every month (January-November) at the Central Building and on other dates in Seattle neighborhoods.The events bring community elders closer to City officials to explore topics of interest. Our guests learn about City programs and services, and officials hear from the community. Presentations often include cutting edge information about healthy aging, legal and planning issues; however, a broad range of issues have been discussed over the years. Scroll down to Previous Events for information about previous coffee hours. Coffee and other refreshments are served.
