While Winterfest at Seattle Center is unable to host visitors this year, the decades-long tradition will continue online from Nov. 27-31, with virtual content and links to holiday activities by resident organizations and community partners, housed on the Seattle Center Winterfest page, seattlecenter.com/winterfest. Some Seattle Center Winterfest 2020 offerings include:

Campus Luminata: Decorative LED tree lighting throughout the grounds. 

Virtual Student Showcases:  Recorded performances of seasonal selections by school and training program participants in Winterfest Student Showcases. While each day highlights a different ensemble, the collection is available for the duration of Winterfest.

Virtual Winterfest Festál: The Seattle Center Festál community partners celebrate an array of seasonal and holiday traditions through music, dance, cooking and craft demonstrations and storytelling. New content is added each Saturday throughout the Winterfest period.

Our Big Neighborhood Virtual Opening Day: OBN producing partner Northwest Folklife presents family-focused performances by Dunava Balkan Women’s Choir and The Geoducks, along with a tortilla-cooking demonstration with Francisca Garcia of Machtia. OBN posts remain accessible throughout the Winterfest period.

Digital Centerville News:  This “mockpaper’” continues in the absence of Winter Train & Village to highlight the miniature town’s imaginary happenings through short stories, news articles, obituaries and other train related content.

Holiday Coloring Contest:  Seattle Center Winterfest décor designer Jeffery Cook has created several downloadable coloring forms, available on the Winterfest webpage. Submitted completed drawings will be posted on the Seattle Center Facebook page and each week entered into a random prize drawing. 

PTSA Reflections Digital Gallery: Winterfest presents this online display of original student artwork in partnership with Parent Teacher Student Association of Washington State.
