Federal Way’s Pacific Bonsai Museum hosting A Bonsai Solstice

The Pacific Bonsai Museum is inviting public to enjoy the bonsai collection illuminated by candlelight at the fourth annual A Bonsai Solstice.

To add to the atmosphere, native American flutist Gary Stroutsos will perform as a special guest artist this year. Learn more about him at garystroutsos.com/.

Residents can bring their own flashlights and sip a hot cocoa or coffee compliments of Caffé D’arte. P&J’s Waffle Delights Food Truck will be onsite, as well, for people to treat themselves to sweet or savory waffles.

The event is child friends, and the event is free, although donations to support the museum are always appreciated. Commemorative votives will be available with a $5 donation.

This year’s event will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 17 at the museum on the former Weyerhaeuser campus, 2515 S. 336th St., Federal Way. Free parking is available across from the museum. People should follow signs to “garden parking.” Handicapped parking is available at the museum entrance.

For more information, contact the museum, 253-353-7345, or email Liz Sullivan, Liz@pacificbonsaimuseum.org.

The Pacific Bonsai Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. It is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Thanksgiving. Learn more about the museum at pacificbonsaimuseum.org/.
