Pier 86 is a testimony to both land and sea; grains collected from the interior continent are then shipped to distant peoples. The symbolism of using Pier 86 roots Seattle’s connection to Elliot Bay, the ancestral home of the Native peoples, the cities original industrial development and more recently, tech and tourism commerce.

“Let There Be Light” will be a celebration of the Seattle waterfront, it’s history, it’s people, and it's light shining the way into the future.
