Winter is coming, but unlike those dreary White Walkers, it doesn’t need to be a bummer. Instead, think warmth, family, and fun-filled West Seattle holiday events, and you’ll get an idea of what we’re talking about.  

We love being a proud part of our West Seattle neighborhood, and with that in mind we’ve rounded up a passel of awesome festivities you can enjoy with or without the benefit of our top-quality, locally grown and expertly handled cannabis.

When: Weekends early, then continuously mid-month through New Year’s Day
Cost: FREE
Where: 4120 38th SW, West Seattle

Sounds a bit trippy, doesn’t it? But this event is straight-up Christmas cheer, including a music-synced display of holiday lights courtesy of the good folks behind West Seattle Yuletide. They plan to begin shows about 5:30 pm running through about 9 pm. Shows will run longer if an audience has assembled, and it’s likely they’ll go even longer on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Enchant Christmas
When: Nov. 23 – Dec. 30, 2018
Cost: Tickets start at $19.99; children 3 and under free
Where: Safeco Field, Seattle

It’s not free, and it’s not low-key. But Enchant Christmas is most definitely an immersive Seattle holiday event experience, and it could be just the right ticket for those who truly yearn for Christmas. The highlight is The Great Search, billed as the “world’s largest Christmas light maze” and sprawls over nearly the entire baseball field. Your ticket also gets you access to a skating rink, a holiday market, and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus as well as special concerts, shows, and events throughout the season.
