Welcome to Seattle Center
Celebrate our nation’s independence while congratulating more than 500 new U.S. citizens at the Naturalization Ceremony, the largest daytime Independence Day observance in the Northwest.
Seattle Center, City of Seattle and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services co-present the Naturalization Ceremony, held annually at Seattle Center for the past 34 years. City of Seattle officials participate in many ways that include announcing all represented countries, and by introducing the eldest applicant for citizenship.
Seattle Center Director Robert Nellams will welcome attendees, and thousands are expected to attend this FREE event.
Band performs starting at 11am. Ceremony begins at noon.
