Experience the Pacific Northwest

When you host an event at the Lynnwood Convention Center, not only do you get superb customer service and innovative cuisine at a state of the art facility, you get nearby amenities, like amazing shopping, affordable lodging and convenient access to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. 

Located just sixteen miles north of Seattle, on the intersection of Interstates 5 and 405, Lynnwood is the ideal location for events and exploring the Pacific Northwest. Lynnwood offers affordable lodging, up to 40% less than downtown Seattle, shopping, dining, golf, an aquatic center, historical attractions and easy access to Seattle, beaches, ferries, and outdoor adventure. 

Lynnwood is home to Alderwood mall, the region’s destination shopping center, with over 175 shops, seven full service restaurants, and a 16-screen movie theater. The indoor/outdoor experience at Alderwood provides plenty of options for passing the time. 

Now is the perfect time to book a holiday event and experience the holiday magic in the Pacific Northwest!

The Lights of Christmas at Warm Beach are a must see, with over one million and dazzling displays. Explore the holiday lights, visit the petting zoo, warm up with hot chocolate and fresh donuts, listen to the holiday story telling!

Be delighted with the holiday magic at Snowflake Lane in Bellevue. Every night between November 23 and December 23 at 7:30PM experience a parade of your favorite holiday characters and music, complete with falling snow!

Making its debut in Seattle, Enchant Christmas will transform Safeco Field into a twinkling holiday maze with giant Christmas trees, larger than life ornaments, snowflakes, and Santa.

The Bellevue Botanical Garden is transformed into a magical display, Garden D'Lights , with over a half million lights, in whimsical shapes or plants, flowers, animals and waterfalls.

Winterfest at Seattle Center is filled with free and affordable children's activities and spirited entertainment, including an ice rink, student showcase performances, model train display, and ice carving.
