Snow Days are a magical time when the world's expectations and burdens suddenly come to a halt. The pace of life slows down, the responsibilities of a habitual day change; nature speaks up and says, "Hey! Don't forget who's in charge." While we can’t control Mother Nature, we can orchestrate a festival built around the attitudes and merriment of a Snow Day.
After a series of hilarious phone calls, we’ve finally figured out how to transport 162,000 lbs. of snow from the mountain passes into Seattle Center. Local organizations will use the snow to build forts and castles in an epic competition against snow kings and queens. Minutes after the most majestic snow fort is crowned, six thousand people will descend upon the snow fort village in an attempt to break the record for the World’s Largest Snowball Fight (officially held by the Republic of Korea at 5,387 participants). Snow day is about much more than just breaking a world record. It’s an opportunity for the community to express our Northwest pride while embracing the inner child in all of us.

Only in Seattle can you schedule a perfect winter's day with brilliant sunshine, trucked-in snow, and make it the best day ever, with friends. - Barbro
We are a team that thoroughly enjoys getting our fundraiser on. This year, we are donating all event proceeds to the Boys and Girls Clubs of King County. We do it because we love bringing joy into people's lives through amazing activities.
