Holiday Carousel in Westlake Park

Calendar/Event Details

Mon, December 10, 2018
Tue, January 1, 2019

Dark winter days are no match for the lights and merriment of DSA’s iconic Holiday Carousel, spinning in Westlake Park for the 31st year. Give it a whirl for a suggested donation of $4.

Each ride benefits DSA’s programming and management of Occidental Square and Westlake Park. We bring activities and events to the parks year-round as part of a 5-year agreement with the City of Seattle. More information is available here.

After you hop off the carousel, make sure to check out the Holiday Market just a few steps away. Local artisans are offering their handcrafted wares to downtown shoppers for the third year as part of a collaboration between DSA and Urban Craft Uprising.
