Don't Fall for Unlicensed Street Vendors!

Seattleites know to keep their cash safe and our community free of scammers by tipping or paying only buskers, artists, and peddlers with a clearly displayed permit or license from the City of Seattle.  Be wise and know that you will not find a real Buddhist monk asking for money on Alaskan Way.  Please feel free to contact us with more information or concerns.

The City of Seattle encourages the use of its Find-it Fix-it app to report issues that need attention (from clogged storm drains and graffiti to broken parking meters and overgrown vegetation).  Keep posting the issue on the app until it is resolved.
