Seattle's love for and connection to Jimi Hendrix runs deep, and his music and style will forever stand the test of time.

 

On September 18th, 1970, Jimi Hendrix passed away at the age of 27. 48 years later there are multiple placess to visit and remember him in the greater Seattle area. 

 

1. Jimi Hendrix Park. In the summer of 2017, Jimi Hendrix Park was unveiled in Seattle's Central District and has become a gathering place celebrating cultural heritage and creativity.

 

The designs and themes throughout the 2.5-acre park are inspired by the life of Jimi Hendrix.

 

Today, 2 of 3 phases of the park have been completed, with Phase 3 coming soon. Your donation will support the project and shape the future of this beautiful place! 

 

2. Jimi Hendrix Statue on Broadway. Located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, this legendary statue is visited and photographed hundreds of times every single day. 

We hope that you are having a fun Tuesday.

3. Jimi Hendrix Memorial in Renton. Jimi Hendrix's father created a beautiful space for honoring his son at Greenwood Memorial Park, and it's been said that an average of 100,000 people visit this memorial every year. People leave everything from guitar pics to art to flowers every single day.
