Looking forward to Microsoft Build? Now you’ve got one more reason. After three days of can’t-miss tech sessions and skill-sharpening workshops, we’re throwing an awesome party for attendees at Seattle Center.

We’ll celebrate with an evening of music, games, exhibits, and more at these world-famous Seattle sites, open exclusively to Microsoft Build attendees on the evening of May 9, 2018, starting at 7:30 PM:

  • Drop by MoPOP, designed by internationally acclaimed architect Frank O. Gehry, and lose yourself in the latest exhibition dedicated to your favorite comic books, Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes. Discover everything you ever wanted to know about the greatest guitarists of all time, grunge rock legend Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, the iconic Captain Kirk and the rest of the Star Trek crew, classic horror movies, sci-fi masterpieces, and more. The museum has tons of unique exhibits and hands-on experiences to check out. And you won’t want to miss the famous Sky Church with state-of-the-art acoustics and a soaring 65-foot ceiling — the perfect setting for the evening’s live music entertainment.
  • Get your silent groove on at Next 50 Plaza, just outside MoPOP. Grab a headset, pick your DJ, and dance to your favorite beat in this beautiful downtown Seattle setting. Or enjoy a little open-air gaming at the Pavilion nearby.


  • Cross the street to Chihuly Garden and Glass, and immerse yourself in a wonderland of Dale Chihuly’s beautiful artwork. Journey through the Galleries and Gardens, ending in the stunning Glasshouse, where a 100-foot-long sculpture hangs overhead. Dueling pianos will provide animated ambiance and you can swing by the live glass-blowing demonstration to see how it’s all done.
