Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition
Don't miss the The 26th Annual Holiday Celebration Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition on Friday, December 7th from 5-8:30pm at Westlake Center in Downtown Seattle!
The biggest single music holiday event of the season and a critical fundraiser for the Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank, The Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition kicks off the month of December with a singular evening of entertainment enjoyed by more than 9,000 spectators every year.
1,000 carolers and dozens of caroling teams sing their hearts out on downtown Seattle street corners and in an around Westlake Center beginning at 5 pm. The top caroling teams compete for crowd favor and prizes for the most donations raised, best choral performance, most creative team and people’s choice. Those nominated compete in a sing-off on the Figgy Main Stage.
A Seattle holiday tradition, the Great Figgy Pudding is a zany, family friendly and delightful holiday event for everyone. Caroling teams range the gamut from dancing lawyers, to costumed co-workers of Seattle landmark businesses to Von Trapp-like families.
Local Seattle TV personality Nancy Guppy serves as Honorary Figmaster. Returning caroling team crowd pleasers include the Starbucks Coffee Choir, Emerald City Voices, Seattle Labor Chorus and The Beaconettes.
