2023 marks 33 years of Winterfest!

Winterfest is a Parkland-Spanaway community event that inspires hope by connecting low-income families with gifts and resources during the holiday season. In previous years, Winterfest has served hundreds of local families by offering a place to share refreshments, children’s fair with games, face painting, a visit with Santa, and crafts. Parents also had the opportunity to select holiday gifts for their children, connect with local resources, and access coats, socks, and personal hygiene items. This year, as in previous years, Winterfest 2023 is by invitation-only.

Thanks to our Winterfest partners, donors, and sponsors!

To the 400+ volunteers, sponsors, community members, and all who contributed time and resources to Winterfest in recent years, THANK YOU! You are an integral part of Winterfest and the reason this program has grown over the past 30 years.
