Enjoy a weekend filled with art, holiday shopping and old-fashioned, seasonal fun during Vashon Island’s Winterfest Weekend. The weekend is overflowing with activities for all ages and interests and it is sure to put you in the holiday spirit!
The weekend kicks off on Friday night with the First Friday Gallery Tour - see great art, nibble and sip yummy things, and begin your shopping!
Saturday and Sunday will offer more art opportunities with the Holiday Art Studio Tour. Visit studios throughout Vashon and possibly pick up some holiday gifts along the way. While touring the studios, be sure to also take time for the 3rd Annual Gingerbread House Tour. Vashon businesses will decorate unique gingerbread “houses” and your voting ballot will offer you a chance to win valuable prizes.
Saturday activities include the traditional Merchant Open House with additional chances to win prizes, as well as the Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting in the evening. Santa will arrive in Vashon town and spend time with the kids at Santa’s Cottage.
There is a whole weekend of fun planned so skip the generic shopping malls this year and enjoy the uniqueness of Vashon during the holiday season.
