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. 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, in light of the on-going pandemic and public health recommendations, Winterfest 2020 is by invitation-only and hosted by a small group of socially distanced volunteers. We hope to return to full capacity next year for Winterfest 2021!
