Seattle community celebrates the holidays in a big way at our annual party – GeekWire

Seattle community celebrates the holidays in a big way at our annual party – GeekWire

GeekWire Gala 2022 at Block 41 in Seattle.

The GeekWire Gala returned in epic fashion Wednesday evening as we welcomed nearly 700 people to our holiday bash for an evening of great conversation, tasty treats, lively music, festive cocktails, and much more.

We brought back the annual tradition after a two-year hiatus and celebrated at Block 41 in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.

People reunited with old friends; made new ones; belted out at karaoke; created cotton candy art; and danced the night away.

Mark Maclean of Montreal International and Rob Fiddick of Global Affairs Canada speak during the GeekWire Gala 2022 VIP reception.

On stage, we spotlighted the winners of our fourth Geek Style Reboot, a special package presented in partnership with Nordstrom in which two hard-working geeks — Karina Martija-Harris and Brian Crouch — got a day of pampering at the retailer’s flagship store in downtown Seattle.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the GeekWire Gala. Check out the photos from the photo booth here or below.

And of course, this holiday tradition would not be possible without our GeekWire Gala sponsors. They are:
