Join us for the 29th Annual 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!
