Islander Lights 2023 Holiday Village

Islander Lights will take place this year on Friday, November 17th starting at 5:00 PM. Register your Student Organization/University Department to participate in our Holiday Village to promote your organization and host a holiday craft or activity appropriate for the general community (including small children). 

The tables will be set up in a "Holiday Wonderland Village" style, so we encourage you to decorate your table and go big!  Tables can follow a theme of the holiday season or just be adorable. We hope that people will wander through the village getting to know each organization, enjoying crafts, and seeing our Islander spirit! Visit our Pinterest page for some ideas for decorating and hosting your table.
