Garfield High School Centennial - Celebrating 10 Decades of Garfield History and Traditions

In 2020, Garfield High School turned 100. The Centennial Committee planned a celebration – then, as our entire community knows, COVID-19 intervened. More than once. But now, on Saturday, August 27, 2022, the City of Seattle, the Central District community and hundreds of Garfield community members, alumni, and current students will rejoice in the Centennial Celebration of Garfield High School.

Highlights of the day will be a variety of musical performances by noted alumni and current students, mini reunions, historical displays, community partner presentations, student displays, food trucks and much, much more. We are honored to have Garfield Alumnus Quincy Jones ’50 as honorary chairman for the event. Founded in 1920 in a small building as East High, James A. Garfield High School became the permanent name in 1922.The current building was completed in 1923 and an extensive remodel took place between 2006 and 2008.

The celebration takes place in tents on the athletic fields, and, as restrictions allow, inside the gymnasium, Quincy Jones Performing Arts Center, and Garfield's main building.
