Join us in Magnolia Village on the afternoon and evening of Dec. 2. A full array of special events, holiday arts and crafts, unique menus, tree lighting, caroling, photos with Santa, after-hours shopping, and so much more await our Magnolia community and visitors. This year promises to be a great Winterfest, with many activities to enjoy.

Winterfest is also a kick-off of Magnolia's Small Business Season! Celebrate by purchasing locally available gifts and products while enjoying meals and beverages at one of Magnolia's many restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries. Winterfest makes it easy to love and shop locally and support our small business community during this festive time.


Every year, Queen Anne Helpline offers a bag of Thanksgiving groceries, including turkey, pumpkin, pie, stuffing, and more, to low-income seniors in our service area.

The pool closure is scheduled for Nov. 17 through Dec. 4. 

This one is a scheduled preventative maintenance closure. While the pool was closed this summer due to staff constraints with the lifeguard staff capacity, the parks team was unable to get the work done at this time as it is also peak season for facilities maintenance.
