Winterfest 2019 Remarks...
To the 400+ volunteers, our sponsors, community members, and all who contributed time and resources to Winterfest 2019, THANK YOU! You are an integral part of Winterfest and the reason this program has grown over the past 29 years.
2020 marks 30 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. Winterfest serves 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 will have the opportunity to select holiday gifts for their children, connect with local resources, and access coats, socks, and personal hygiene items. Whether you are a longtime resident or business owner or are new to the area and attending school here, we hope that you will join us!
Become a Winterfest sponsor today! All donations will help local community members this holiday season. More information about sponsorship tiers here. Please note– for Tier 1 and 2 to be included on all posters September 15th is the cutoff date.
Winterfest would not happen without sponsors from all sectors of our community. The list below highlights our largest cash and gift-in-kind sponsors.
