A volunteer-powered neighborhood gathering place.


The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been the heart of our community since 1919. HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers. 

We're your gathering place and your community. Join us for our next neighborhood event. We hold free movie nights, craft fairs and we turn into your local corner bar on the first Friday of every month. 




Corner Bar continues to be our most attended event, and for good reason.  Great music, concessions, and people coming together to light up the spirit of community.  Thanks to the band, RL Heyer & Friends for rocking our club, to all those that volunteer to help to make it happen every month, and a special thanks to Deloris Burckhard for bringing her embroidery machine to add custom names on our T-shirts & Hoodies!  It was a hit, and she's graciously agreed to come again next month.




South Seattle Fiber Arts Club Join your fellow South Seattleites to meet and work on your preferred fiber hobby and socialize. All knitters, crocheters, quilters, embroiderers, weavers, spinners, etc. welcome. People of all backgrounds and skill levels are also welcome to attend. Anyone interested in learning to knit can come down and will be provided basic instruction. Come down and meet your neighbors and fellow fiber enthusiasts!

When: the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of each month from 11 am until 1 pm
Cost: Free!

Goddess Project Viewing Party - Friday September 29th


HPIC is proud to be hosting a viewing of the Goddess Project, a documentary  film amplifying the voices and stories of women across the United States.

Determined to empower the feminine voice, two aspiring filmmakers packed their lives into a school bus and hit the road for what became the most transformative adventure of their lives. Through powerful conversations with over 100 women from different walks of life, The Goddess Project gives an intimate look into the collective experience that women in the United States face today.  
Join us at 7PM for an hour of connection, featuring wines from women wine makers, HPIC bar and food, and soulful networking.  Documentary starts at 8PM, followed by a  group discussion.  Event is limited to 50 people, so register now!
When: Friday, September 29th, 7PM - 10PM
Cost: $18 (HPIC members receive a complimentary refreshment upon arrival!)


HPIC Harvest Dinner Potluck & Talent Show - Saturday September 30th 

harvestdinner.pngJoin your HPIC family around the dinner table!  This is the perfect time of the year to break bread with your neighbors, count your blessings, to share meaningful stories, soul-nourishing food, and build our sense of community.  Celebrate the harvest by bringing a seasonal home-made dish to share.  The HPIC bar will be open.

And back by popular demand: We will be hosting a talent show! The gifted & comedic duo - Chris Huson and Krissy Otis - will be coordinating and hosting the talent show. What are we looking for?

  • A performance that is no longer than five minutes. There will be a gong reminder, if needed.
  • A family friendly act (if you have a burlesque talent, that would be a different show).
  • No age restriction. Talent is talent, regardless of age.
Email us (hpic1919@gmail.com) to sign up for the Talent Show! You know you want to…

Also, we'll be collecting food to donate to our neighbor church, Paradise of Praise, so bring a non-perishable food item to donate.

When: Saturday, September 30th, 6PM - 9PM
Doors open: 6:00PM
Dinner starts: 6:30PM
Talent show starts: 7:30PM
