KNKX Connects to Pike Place Market - Join us at Folio Seattle for a Civic Conversation

KNKX is relaunching our "KNKX Connects" initiative to connect listeners to different communities around the region in 2023 and beyond. Our news and music teams will tell the stories of interesting people creating art, making music, and cooking unique food.

The first KNKX Connects series is a weeklong adventure exploring the history, art and culture of Pike Place Market. Listen to stories on-air and online June 5-9. Join us for a free civic conversation on Monday, June 5 at Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum in Pike Place Market around the theme, "What makes a place iconic?" The conversation will be moderated by KNKX News Director Florangela Davila. She'll talk with former Washington State Poet Laureate Claudia Castro Luna, Cynthia Brothers, founder of Vanishing Seattle, and Rodney Hines, founder of Métier Brewing Company. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. KNKX will be recording and videotaping the event. Enjoy food and drink at Folio following the civic conversation. Information about accessing Folio can be found here.
