December 2024 - February 2025

Winterfest is a celebration of all things Winter!

Imagine old-fashioned winter celebrations. Warming frosty fingers around a steaming mug of cocoa, the laughter of children, the aroma of a crackling fire. December brings the magic of holiday events and the spirit of everyone’s favorite season. 

There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy during our three month-long celebration - a makers market, visits from Santa and his reindeer, luminary walks and more!

New Year's Eve is a great time to celebrate all we've done and all we will do in the coming year. However, midnight can come too late for young ones, and let's face it, sometimes the adults. Join us as we celebrate the New Year a little early with activities for all ages and a countdown to NOON!
