Seattle Center Winterfest Opening Weekend Activities Announced
The Seattle Center Winterfest presented by Symetra begins November 26 with an opening weekend of live entertainment and family celebrations. Winter Train & Village returns to a fully equipped dining and event hall, and the awe-inspiring exhibit in the Fisher Pavilion nicely complements the free events on the grounds.
Winterfest continues with a full range of online and live programs, contests and visual experiences through December 31, with some activities continuing into the New Year. From November 26 to 30, the festivities are as follows.
On the campus:
Seattle Center Luminata: Twinkling tree lights line campus walkways to accompany the colorful lighting of buildings and grounds. Lighting is provided by Climate Pledge Arena.
Awesome Exhibit: This interactive exhibit features 38 large-scale LEGO® creations comprising nearly a million LEGO® bricks. The exhibit, in the Fisher Pavilion through January 16, 2022, features an eight-foot-tall, 660-pound Orca, the first full-size LEGO® brick Harley-Davidson, and an almost 25-foot NASA SLS rocket from above.
