Seattle Monorail Holiday Schedule

Holiday Activities:

There’s so much to do at Seattle Center’s Winterfest during the holidays. Hop on the Monorail from downtown’s Westlake Center and explore all that Seattle Center has to offer including the enchanting miniature Winter Train and Village inside Center House and the Winterfest Ice Rink at Fisher Pavilion.

Seattle Center offers a variety of free and affordable activities as well as performances by more than 100 student groups. Don’t miss out!

Holidays in the City is back! This is a great resource that provides up-to-date information about all the holiday events and activities happening downtown. There is also a free Holidays in the City app available for Apple products: click HERE to learn more and download.
