Every Family's Northwest Bucket List

  • Lunar New Year. From Seattle’s International District to Bellevue Square, there’s a Lunar New Year celebration for every age and temperament. Find enthralling firecrackers, lion dances, dumplings and quieter cultural fun. (Note: Lunar New Year sometimes occurs in late January, depending on the year.)
  • Northwest Flower & Garden Show. Gear up for spring at this massive green-thumb-o-rama, held at the Washington State Convention Center. It’s free admission for kids 12 and under, with plenty of activities. 
  • Kids 'n’ Critters. The annual winter festival at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville features special activities with an animal theme, and a great bargain: Up to four kids are free with each paying adult.
