Fisher Pavilion History
The Flag Pavilion, the original structure on this site, was built to last only six-months as an exhibition space for the 1962 World's Fair. It actually lasted over 39 years as the home to over fifteen cultural festivals, commercial and public events. During the World's Fair, the facility served as a gathering place for many famous US politicians such as former president Lyndon Johnson, then- Governor Albert Rosellini, Senator John Glenn, and Senator Warren Magnuson.
Fisher Pavilion held its Grand Opening in September 2002 as Seattle Center’s new inviting gathering place for all to enjoy cultural festivals, community celebrations and commercial events.
Fisher Pavilion is host to all of the major festivals on campus, as well as the Festal cultural festivals, plus it’s the site for the Winterfest Ice Rink and many other events and exhibits from concerts to shows and public gatherings throughout the year.
