What is Phestivus?

The Phinney Neighborhood Association, a non-profit community organization in NW Seattle, is throwing Phestivus again in 2023, a seasonal celebration for all of us. At the PNA we go gaga for the holiday season. From neighbor to neighbor, friend to friend, our connections shine, making us brighter together!

Check back in November 2024 for 2024 dates!

Phestivus Events


Date: Nov 22 – Jan 1 Time: Season long Our famous animal lights will illuminate PhinneyWood! The PNAnimals are a diverse group; they swim, fly, run, and climb. Some we see every day, some only at the zoo, some we might count ourselves lucky to see even once. They all have something important in common: you can find each of these animals in the Pacific Northwest and all of them have characteristics that we feel reflect our community.

Give the Gift of Membership

A gift of membership to the PNA or PNA Village opens the door to connection and neighborly fun. It also shows you support our community–seniors, kids, neighbors, local businesses, and folks in need.  It’s a perfect gift for that person who has everything–residence in PhinneyWood not required!

We’ll let the lucky recipient know about the gift and all the benefits of being a PNA or PNA Village Member.
