What’s Happening on Beacon Hill

Are you in town for the holidays? Would you like to stay on the hill for New Year’s Eve instead of deal with traffic and parking? Here are a few ideas to spice up the last days of December and beyond:

December 21st, 7am to 9pm – Winter Solstice Hafla and 4-year Anniversary Celebration is a free, family friendly potluck at Skin Deep Dance Studios, 2524 16th Ave. S. #311 (El Centro de la Raza). Performances from 7 to 9pm, followed by OPEN DANCE. For more information contact: 206.325.0455 or

New Year’s Eve, 9pm to 1am – The Station Cafe is serving mimosas and champagne on New Year’s Eve! Art work by Sujot Kaur is on the list of treats that will warm your spirit and keep you close to home – what more can you ask for?


An Abundance of Holiday Spirit!

I’d say the Tree Lighting and Posada event held on El Centro grounds (and co-sponsored by Beacon Hill Merchants Association) was a big draw for community tonight! So many came out to celebrate and enjoy the lights, music and food. Big cheers to everyone involved in planning the evening at El Centro de la raza and to all of us for making the evening special.

I’m sure you’ll see pictures posted in the coming days but here is one to enjoy now. The image below shows Seattle Fandango Project during their La Rama performance of ‘Naranjas y Limas’ led by visiting artist Patricio Hidalgo from Veracruz, Mexico.

Don’t miss them on Beacon Hill when they perform again on 12-17 as part of the traditional Mexican Posada starting at The Station 5pm and ending at El Quetzal 8pm.
