Winter Fest 2015

Mark your calendars and experience the holiday magic of Winter Fest with the annual University Place Christmas Tree Lighting in Market Square – always the first Saturday in December.

This seasonal extravaganza will take place on Dec. 5 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Civic Building (3609 Market Square). Join us for the arrival of Santa, entertainment, crafts, vendors and food in Santa’s Loft, the Christmas Tree Lighting and an abundance of holiday cheer! Make sure to get a picture with Santa (and confide your secret wishes), cozy up with a warm winter treat by the fire, or gather near the outdoor fireplace surrounded by the holiday lights in the evening. University Place Winter Fest will feature live musical and dance performances by local schools and organizations. Back again this year, special performances by the Dickens Carolers!
