Monopolize Folklife Festival

Alex Garland PhotographyThe big banks have been playing monopoly with our money & our homes.

On Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th, 11:00am to 6:00pm, just in time for Memorial Day weekend, let's return the favor…

The plan: Monopolize Folklife Festival at Seattle Center all day by turning the sidewalk into a giant Monopoly board! Street Theater style, let's get the public involved in a roving Monopoly game. Have them name streets, roll the dice, or take a chance!

While drawing attention to big bank practices we want to also encourage their customers to foreclose on their accounts & take their money to a credit union or community bank. We'll have monopoly money and "foreclosure" notices on hand to give out with some helpful facts about big banks and more information about doing just that.

We will be meeting up on the lawn East of the Space Needle.

Let's dress up and play bank!

Like costumes?!?! Here are some ideas! Come dressed as:
● A foreclosed home
● A slum hotel
● Your favourite game piece
● Rich "Uncle" Pennybags
● A keystone cop
● Giant dice
● A community chest
● A chance card
● Anything else you can think of!

Don't like costumes? Just come as yourself! Show your support and help us shut them down.
