Seattle Center seeks programming for Fun Forest site

image_ffSeattle Center is seeking proposals for “fun, imaginative and family-friendly” activities to enliven space once occupied by amusement rides.

Next month, Fun Forest Amusements (FFA), Inc. – which has operated at Seattle Center for 47 years – will consolidate its amusement rides in an area south of the Monorail station, freeing up 68,000 square feet of outdoor space.

Selected proposals will be for temporary attractions and events between May 2010 and December 2011. In January 2012, Seattle Center will start preparing its facilities and grounds for a six-month celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.

The deadline to submit proposals is Monday, Jan. 18, 2010.  Download the Request for Proposals.
