Activities Announced For Opening Weekend of Seattle Center Winterfest

Seattle Center Winterfest presented by Symetra begins Nov. 26 with an opening weekend of live entertainment and family-friendly festivities. Winter Train & Village returns to a fully decked Food & Event Hall, and Awesome Exhibition in Fisher Pavilion aptly complements the free happenings on the grounds.

Winterfest continues with a full slate of online and live programming, contests and visual experiences through Dec. 31, with some activities continuing into the new year. Nov. 26-30 festivities include the following.

On Campus:

Seattle Center Luminata: Twinkling tree lights line campus pathways to accompany colorful lighting on buildings and grounds. The illumination is provided by Climate Pledge Arena.

Awesome Exhibition: This interactive exhibit features 38 large-scale LEGO® creations incorporating nearly 1 million LEGO® bricks. The exhibit, in Fisher Pavilion through Jan. 16, 2022, includes an eight-foot-tall, 660-pound Orca, the world's first life-sized LEGO® brick Harley-Davidson and a NASA SLS rocket almost 25 feet high.
