November 20th, 2012 by Doree

The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s annual Winter Festival & Crafts Fair on Dec. 1-2 features 115 artists and crafts vendors, plus hundreds of musicians and dancers, a bake sale and a quilt raffle. More than 4,000 people are expected to shop for holiday gifts at the Winter Festival.

From the 2010 Winter Festival.

Arts and crafts run the gamut from garden art to hand-made clothing, housewares and children’s toys, while the entertainment ranges from souse to marimba, Appalachian cloggers, blue grass and Middle Eastern belly dancers.

Raffle tickets for the quilt are $1 and can be purchased now at the Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., or at the Winter Festival. The drawing will be at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2; the winner does not need to be present to win.

The Winter Festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 1-2. Admission is $2 for PNA members and $4 for non-members. Children 12 and under are free.
