The City of Burien is proud to announce the return of “It’s a Wonderful Burien,” an annual campaign encouraging community members to celebrate the holidays locally by enjoying unique dining, shopping, and seasonal experiences hosted by Burien’s businesses, arts organizations, and community partners. Winter lights will illuminate Town Square Park every night between November 25–December 31, inspiring people to come to downtown Burien for holiday happenings hosted by the City of Burien and community partners.

“Burien is well known in the region for our cherished events and diverse community,” said Adolfo Bailon, Burien City Manager. “Residents tell us that our small-town charm, driven by our thriving small business, nonprofit, and arts community is what they enjoy most about living in Burien."

This is the fifth year Burien has celebrated this winter holiday tradition. The “It’s a Wonderful Burien” event series features:

  • Artisan markets and holiday bazaars, including the Moshier Community Art Center Pottery Sale
  • The Nutcracker and other winter dance and music performances
  • Burien Actors Theatre’s production of “The 12 Dates of Christmas”
  • Discover Burien’s “Cookie Crawl”
  • Casa Italiana’s pasta fagioli dinner with Italian chestnut roast, and their Christmas bake sale
  • Free photos with Santa at the Tin Room Bar & Theater
  • Highline Heritage Museum’s “La Posada", a traditional Mexican cultural celebration
  • And many more fun and local events!

The “It’s a Wonderful Burien” marketing initiative was launched to showcase Burien gems, and to encourage the public to shop and celebrate local in Burien.

“We believe Burien is a special place to create holiday memories with your friends and family,” said Bailon. “Enjoy our local events and winter traditions while supporting the groups and businesses that make Burien unique.”
