Redmond, WA – The City of Redmond presents Redmond Lights, an annual Winter Festival, on Saturday, December 7, from 4–8 p.m. for A Joyful Celebration and Sunday, December 8, from 5–8 p.m. for A Peaceful Journey.

“Redmond Lights provides an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate our winter traditions and unite our different cultures and faiths,” said Mayor John Marchione. “This year’s event will showcase new art, activities and entertainment. We invite everyone to come out and enjoy the diversity that makes our community unique.”

On Saturday, December 7, attendees are invited to start the day at 4 p.m., when the Redmond City Hall campus comes alive with interactive booths, light features and live music on the main stage. Mayor Marchione, along with special guests, will then light the campus oak tree at 5 p.m. After the tree lighting ceremony, guests will be invited to depart on a joyful celebration down the enchanting luminary walk to Redmond Town Center any time after 5 p.m. On the walk along the Redmond Central Connector trail, visitors will take in the sights and sounds of the season and enjoy eye-catching new light installations by eight local artists, two of them featured at the Downtown Park as part of the luminary walk route. Downtown Park will also feature interactive activities for the whole family, food trucks and a beer and wine garden.

Once the luminary walk ends, the entertainment continues at Redmond Town Center until 8 p.m., with an outdoor skating rink, kids’ activities, free holiday carousel rides, holiday music, Santa, and more. Parking is available at Redmond Town Center or the City Hall garage, and a free shuttle runs on Saturday only between both locations from 3:30–8:30 p.m. The shuttle stops are in front of the Redmond Public Safety Building on Redmond Municipal Campus, and Gene Juarez at Redmond Town Center.

If you want to skip the crowds or are looking for a more quiet, contemplative experience, join us on Sunday, December 8. The second night of Redmond Lights opens at 5 p.m. on the City Hall campus with parking available in the City Hall garage. Guests are invited to begin their peaceful journey on the luminary walk behind the City Hall building along the Sammamish River Trail and take a quiet stroll through the Redmond Central Connector trail, enjoying luminaries, light and art installations along the way. The evening culminates at the Downtown Park with interactive activities for the whole family, food trucks and a beer and wine garden.
