Many Seattle-area bars welcome soccer fans for World Cup viewing. But where can you go if you’re under 21, or the bar scene isn’t your thing?

At least four major venues will host all-ages viewing parties in the coming weeks. If you have more to add to the list, send them to arts@seattletimes.com.

Nord Alley

At least 20 matches will be shown on a big screen in Pioneer Square’s Nord Alley, including games involving the U.S. team on June 16 (vs. Ghana), June 22 (vs. Portugal) and June 26 (vs. Germany). Fans are encouraged to wear team colors and bring a lunch. Nord Alley has been the site of an urban reclamation project over the past several years, hosting civic events and arts installations.

Phinney Neighborhood Association

Forty-plus matches will be shown on a 14-by-8-foot movie screen at the Phinney Center, beginning with the June 12 opener (Brazil vs. Croatia) and continuing through the championship game on July 13. Admission is free and food trucks will be on site. For details: phinneycenter.org/worldcup/index.html.

Seattle Public Library

Viewing parties are scheduled for several matches in June and July at the Central Library, the Northgate Branch and the High Point Branch, starting on June 16. The screen at the Central Branch is 15-by-20 feet, and coffee, soda and snacks will be for sale. Doors open 30 minutes in advance and viewings are free. For details: spl.org/about-the-library/library-news-releases/world-cup-616.

King County Library System

Several branches will host free viewings for the duration of the World Cup, including Boulevard Park, Kenmore, Vashon and Foster. For more information, go to kcls.org/calendar and search the keywords World Cup.
