The Beaconettes at Holiday in the Park
Holiday in the Park is this Thursday!

Come join the fun on Thursday evening between 6:00 and 8:00 PM when Volunteer Park will be turned into a magical parade of lights with over 600 luminarias lining the pathways.  This FREE event will feature free cookies courtesy of Whole Foods and free cocoa donated by Tully’s Coffee and the live choral performances at our main stage in front of the Seattle Asian Art Museum:
  • 6:00pm The Columbia City Community and Family Chorus
  • 6:30pm The Total Experience Gospel Choir
  • 7:00pm Sing Noel
  • 7:30pm The Beaconettes
 See our Facebook event page here for more details.
Note that the Volunteer Park main concourse will be CLOSED to cars from the Water Tower to the Conservatory. You may drop off passengers at both park entrances:
  • 15th Ave East &  East Galer
  • East Prospect St. & 12th Ave E  (see map below).
 Parking will be available on the road that runs through the west side of the park and on surrounding streets, but please know that parking will be in high demand and possibly hard to find. The 10 and 49 buses are great alternatives for getting to the park.  Dress warmly. We’ll see you there!
