Holiday Adventures in Seattle, Part 2

Thanksgiving is here: you know where you’re eating, you know what you’re bringing, and you know who’s in charge of the turkey – which hopefully is in the fridge for thawing! But what are you doing next week? And the week after that?

Here in Seattle, those are not tough questions to answer, other than choosing from the huge list of Seattle holiday events, fairs, craft shows, concerts…….you get the idea. And you need to carve out time to spend with family and friends that are traveling to our amazing city to visit you. Why not save some time and do both? While a lot of the events go for the entire month, there are also many that are one or two days only, and you don’t want to miss them!

Nerdy Holiday Market, Nov 29th – Dec 1st

Nowadays, nerd is a term of endearment and we all have one or two on our shopping list. Why not find that special something handmade by other nerds? Head to Hangar 30 at Magnuson Park for the GeekCraft Expo Seattle Holiday Market and shop from over 70 vendors who promise ‘something for every geek on your Christmas list’.

Caroling at Westlake, Dec 6th

Join dozens of caroling teams, and about 10,000 of their friends and family, for the 33rd Annual Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition at Westlake Center from 6pm – 8pm. There will be carolers on every street corner, and the top teams advance to the sing-off on the Figgy Main Stage! The event raises funds for the Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank.

Jule Fest in Poulsbo, Dec 7th

If you’re feeling up to an adventure, hop on the ferry and head to Poulsbo for Jule Fest. Start the day at the Poulsbo Sons of Norway for their annual holiday bazar, which includes homemade Lefse and other yummy treats. Then head to Muriel Ivereson Waterfront Park at dusk and watch the Poulsbo Sons of Norway Vikings (yes, Vikings!) escort the Lucia Bride to the bonfire, which will be lit while the Viking King reads the Winter Solstice proclamation. Dancing and merriment to follow.

Stay with the Best

Days spent adventuring in all the Seattle holiday events deserve nights spent in a luxurious home away from home.
