Your Guide to Hanukkah 2021 in Seattle – EverOut Seattle

After the piousness of the Jewish High Holidays has passed, Hanukkah rolls in with jelly-filled sufganiyot, chocolate gelt, and menorah lightings celebrating the triumph of the Maccabees and a very miraculous bit of oil. The holiday runs from November 28-December 6 this year, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate around Seattle, from giant outdoor menorah lightings to a sparkly disco-inspired dance party at Supernova, as well as food and drink specials like latkes and brisket.
